Salmonella typhimurium and Campylobacter jejuni pose significant risks to human health and poultry are a major vector for infection. Comparative in vivo infection models were performed to compare the avian host immune response to both bacterial species. Forty-five commercial broiler chickens were orally challenged with either C. jejuni or S. typhimurium whilst 60 similar control birds were mock challenged in parallel. Birds were sacrificed at 0, 6, 20 and 48 h post-infection and cloacal swabs… CONTINUE READING
