Abstract

Infectious enterohepatitis, or blackhead, is often regarded as the most important disease of turkeys since all ages and breeds are susceptible and mortality is high. The yearly financial losses resulting from blackhead have stimulated increasing interest and experimentation on chemotherapy of this disease. Many compounds have been tested, but at the present time no other group of compounds seems to offer as much promise as the organic arsenicals. Several members of this class of compounds as well as a few non-arsenicals have been found to have a limited effect against the blackhead organism; but none, whether arsenical or non-arsenical, has thus far found widespread practical use among turkey raisers.
