Summary and Implications

In five pure genetic lines of chickens, along with the Iowa Salmonella Response Resource Population (ISRRP) AIL-F13 generation, antibody levels to an antiSalmonella vaccine were measured as an estimate of early immune response to bacterial infections. Knowledge of the early immune response and its genetic control factors may aid in understanding host-pathogen interactions and, therefore, improve vaccine development strategies. Using vaccines in poultry facilitates control and reduces the prevalence of bacterial infections in animals and humans.
