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.
