Project: Optimization of production parameters on turkey farms by administration of natural anti-microbial proteins and the use of a recombinant Cp. psittaci vaccin

project duration
01-OCT-05 – 30-SEP-09
abstract
The current project deals with innovative methods for combating the turkey respiratory disease complex. Natural anti-microbial proteins as well as a recombinant Cp. psittaci vaccine will be validated. The purpose of the present study is to augment the production parameters on the farms and to diminish the risk of zoonotic transmission of Cp. psittaci from infected turkey to men.
