The present study explored the immunological correlates of protection mediated by a live bivalent vaccine consisting of herpesvirus of turkeys (HVT) and SB-1 against infection with the RB1B strain of Marek's disease virus (MDV). Compared to unvaccinated infected chickens, vaccinated protected birds had lower expression of interleukin (IL)-6, IL-10 and IL-18 genes in spleen. However, there was no difference between these two groups of birds in the expression of interferon (IFN)-gamma, IL-4, IL… CONTINUE READING
