Forty-five avirulent Australian strains of Newcastle disease virus had been examined for antigenicity in chickens and 18 of these were tested for thermostability. Strain I2, chosen for a combination of antigenicity and thermostability, was artificially selected for enhanced thermostability. Master seed material was then prepared in minimal disease eggs, and… CONTINUE READING
