Researchers Develop Novel Vaccine for Infectious Bronchitis18 December 2013
US - USPOULTRY and the USPOULTRY Foundation announce the completion of a funded research project at Auburn University regarding the development of a novel vaccine for infectious bronchitis.
The project is part of the Association’s comprehensive research program encompassing all phases of poultry and egg production and processing.
Led by Dr Haroldo Toro, a team of researchers developed a novel method for vaccinating chickens against infectious bronchitis virus (IBV).
Because IBV varies widely in its makeup, flocks of chickens often have to be vaccinated with multiple serotypes of IBV vaccines.
The Auburn team, for the first time, developed technology which induces an immune response against multiple serotypes of IBV without having to use multiple vaccine serotypes.
This novel vaccine research has the potential to revolutionize IBV prevention in both the broiler and layer industries.
