Infectious bursal disease virus (IBDV) causes highly contagious, immunosuppressive disease that leads to high mortality in young chickens. The purpose of this study was to look for the genetic regulation of the immune acute immune response to IBDV in our selected lines. Chicks of a F2 generation of two lines divergently selected for early high (HH) or low (LL) antibody (Ab) response to Escherichia coLi vaccination were challenged with virulent IBDV. Viral load in infected bursae was used to… Expand
