Some biological properties of two strains of turkey rhinotracheitis virus, isolated 10 years apart in South Africa, one from turkeys and one from chickens, have been compared. Whilst in vitro cross-neutralization tests showed them to be closely related antigenically they showed different in vivo properties. Both strains elicited an antibody response and caused clinical signs of infection in both chickens and turkeys although the signs tended to be more marked in the species from which the TRTV… CONTINUE READING
