Humoral response and antiviral cytokine expression following vaccination of thoroughbred weanlings--a blinded comparison of commercially available vaccines.

Previous studies in experimental ponies using interferon gamma (IFN-γ) as a marker for cell mediated immune (CMI) response demonstrated an increase in IFN-γ gene expression following vaccination with an ISCOM subunit, a canarypox recombinant and more recently, an inactivated whole virus vaccine. The objective of this study was to carry out an independent… CONTINUE READING
