Although dietary arginine is a factor in immune function and disease resistance, the full range of effects has yet to be described. In this study, the effects of dietary arginine on leukocyte population changes were examined in the peripheral blood and the respiratory tract of chickens inoculated with infectious bronchitis virus (IBV) strain M41. At 2 wk of age, female line P2a White Leghorn-type chickens were randomly assigned to one of three diets with different arginine levels: a marginally… CONTINUE READING
