Poultry coccidiosis: recent advancements in control measures and vaccine development
TLDR
The current progress in understanding the host immune response to Eimeria is reviewed and current and potential strategies being developed for coccidiosis control in poultry are discussed. Expand
Avian gut-associated lymphoid tissues and intestinal immune responses to Eimeria parasites
TLDR
This review summarizes the current understanding of the avian intestinal immune system and mucosal immune responses to Eimeria spp. Expand
Intestinal immune responses to coccidiosis.
TLDR
This review will summarize current understanding of the avian intestinal immune system and its response to Eimeria as well as provide a conceptual overview of the complex molecular and cellular events involved in intestinal immunity to coccidiosis. Expand
Analysis of chicken cytokine and chemokine gene expression following Eimeria acervulina and Eimeria tenella infections.
TLDR
It is concluded that coccidiosis induces a diverse and robust primary cytokine/chemokine response, but a more subdued secondary response. Expand
Changes in immune-related gene expression and intestinal lymphocyte subpopulations following Eimeria maxima infection of chickens.
TLDR
A global chicken intestinal immune response is produced following experimental Eimeria infection involving multiple cytokines, chemokines, and T cell subsets, as well as changes in IEL numbers were quantified. Expand
Enhanced mucosal immunity against Eimeria acervulina in broilers fed a Lactobacillus-based probiotic.
TLDR
Results indicate that the probiotic bacteria impacted the local immune response as characterized by altered IEL subpopulations and increased the birds' resistance to E. acervulina as reflected by reduced oocyst shedding. Expand
Avian coccidiosis. A review of acquired intestinal immunity and vaccination strategies.
TLDR
Orally delivered, live parasite vaccines, either unattenuated or attenuated, are powerful stimulators of intestinal cell-mediated immunity, but antigenic variability between Eimeria species present in the vaccine and in the field may restrict their commercial application. Expand
Recent Advances in Immunomodulation and Vaccination Strategies Against Coccidiosis
TLDR
This study reviews recent coccidiosis research and provides information on host immunity, immunomodulation, and the latest advances in live and recombinant vaccine development against coccidsiosis to help magnify understanding of host-parasite biology and mucosal immunology. Expand
The chicken gastrointestinal microbiome.
TLDR
An overview of the current state of knowledge of the chicken gastrointestinal microbiome focusing on spatial and temporal variability, the presence and importance of human pathogens, the influence of the microbiota on the immune system, and the importance of the microbiome for poultry nutrition is provided. Expand
Butyrate Enhances Disease Resistance of Chickens by Inducing Antimicrobial Host Defense Peptide Gene Expression
TLDR
Results indicated that butyrate-induced synthesis of endogenous HDPs is a phylogenetically conserved mechanism of innate host defense shared by mammals and aves, and that dietary supplementation ofbutyrate has potential for further development as a convenient antibiotic-alternative strategy to enhance host innate immunity and disease resistance.
