Infectious Bursal Disease Virus (IBDV) causes a highly relevant poultry disease that affects young chickens causing, among other effects, immunosuppression. IBDV is a bi-segmented double stranded RNA virus. The smaller ORF of larger RNA segment encodes VP5, a 17-kDa non-structural protein. Although it is an important protein for viral replication cycle, the(More)
Several reports have shown that baculoviruses (BVs) have strong adjuvant properties on the mammalian immune system. Recent studies of our group demonstrated the ability of BV to stimulate the innate immunity in chickens. In this investigation, we aimed to assess the potential antiviral effect of BV given both, before and after infectious bursal disease(More)
Different immunogens such as subunit, DNA or live viral-vectored vaccines against Infectious Bursal Disease virus (IBDV) have been evaluated in the last years. However, the heterologous prime-boost approach using recombinant modified vaccinia Ankara virus (rMVA), which has shown promising results in both mammals and chickens, has not been tried against this(More)
