Chickens that survive primary infection with Leucocytozoon caulleryi show strong resistance to reinfection. Using bursectomized (BX) or cyclosporin A (CsA)-treated chickens, we performed experiments to determine which type of immunity, humoral or cellular immunity, plays an important role in the resistance of chickens against reinfection with L. caulleryi… CONTINUE READING
