A recombinant fowlpox virus expressing the hemagglutinin-neuraminidase (HN) protein of Newcastle disease virus (NDV) strain Texas was generated. Immunoprecipitation with chicken anti-NDV serum confirmed authentic expression of the HN protein. Protection of chickens from infection with NDV was observed when birds were immunized with the recombinant HN fowlpox virus by the intramuscular route after one or two inoculations. Vaccination by the ocular route with a mixture of fowlpox recombinants expressing the fusion and HN proteins did not show added protection over that seen with the individual viruses.
