Clinical and immunological aspects of budgerigars, vaccinated against Newcastle disease were evaluated. Seventy-two birds were distributed into four different experimental groups, vaccinated or not against Newcastle disease: GI (Ulster 2C strain), GII (Bi strain), Gill (LaSota strain) and GIV (not vaccinated- control). The immune response was evaluated by the HI test. Budgerigars showed high antibody titres when vaccinated against Newcastle disease with Ulster 2C, Bi and LaSota strains. No clinical signs associated with post-vaccinal reactions were observed.

    The effect of tilmicosin, florfenicol, or enrofloxacin on humoral and cell-mediated immune response induced by Newcastle disease (ND) vaccination was evaluated in 20-wk-old specific-pathogen-free layer chickens. Humoral immunity was measured by detection of ND virus (NDV) antibody titer and...

    Background: We conducted a Phase I randomized, dose-escalation, route-comparison trial of MVA-CMDR, a candidate HIV-1 vaccine based on a recombinant modified vaccinia Ankara viral vector expressing HIV-1 genes env/gag/pol. The HIV sequences were derived from circulating recombinant form...

    Recent studies have demonstrated the effectiveness of vaccine delivery to the skin by vaccine-coated microneedles; however there is little information on the effects of adjuvants using this approach for vaccination. Here we investigate the use of TLR ligands as adjuvants with skin-based delivery...

    We have shown that vaccination with the recombinant N terminus of Als1p (rAls1p-N) protects mice against disseminated and oropharyngeal candidiasis. We now report that vaccination of mice with a related candidate, rAls3p-N, induces a broader antibody response than rAls1p-N and a similar...

    Elaborate and colorful feathers are important traits in female mate choice in birds. Plumage coloration can result from pigments deposited in feathers such as carotenoids and melanins, or can be caused by nano-scale reflective tissues (structurally based coloration), usually producing...

    The influence of delayed feeding on the performance, development and response of immune system to Newcastle disease vaccination were investigated. 72 day old cockerel chicks purchased from a local hatchery were used. These were at the onset divided into two groups A and B of equal numbers (n =...
