It is well known that broilers may be infected by different Eimeria strains at the same time and that different species infect specific parts of the gut. Cell mediated responses play a major role in the immune response in broilers after infection with Eimeria species. The cell mediated responses could be intestinal site specific and if this site specific cell mediated responses differ when other parts of the intestine are infected is unknown. To investigate this in the Eimeria infection model… CONTINUE READING
