Project: In vitro interactions of Salmonella strains with chicken intestinal epithelial cells, and in vivo evaluation of the early protection against S. Enteritidis challenge and enumeration of caecal infiltration of heterophilic granulocytes
- project duration
- 01-JAN-00 – 31-DEC-99
- Interactions between different commercial vaccine strains against Salmonella and intestinal epithelial cells will be studied in vitro, with respect to decreasing the invasion of a challenge strain of Salmonella. An in vivo cahllenge experiment will be set up to determine the early protection against a challenge strain of S. Enteritidis, and in this respect, enumerztion of the influx of heterophilic granulocytes in the caecal wall will be perfomed.
