Suspensions of cells prepared from the caecal tonsils and spleen, and the peripheral blood lymphocytes of chickens immune to Eimeria maxima, were tested for their ability to transfer resistance to syngeneic recipients. The intravenous injection of approximately 6 x 10(8) spleen cells or peripheral blood lymphocytes caused a significant reduction of oocyst production by the challenged recipients, in comparison with controls which were uninjected or given cells from birds susceptible to E. maxima… CONTINUE READING
