Altered immune function in turkey poults infected with Alcaligenes faecalis, the etiologic agent of turkey rhinotracheitis (coryza)


Altered immune function in turkey poults infected with Alcaligenes faecalis, the etiologic agent of turkey rhinotracheitis (coryza)



Avian Diseases 24(3): 702-714



ISSN/ISBN: 0005-2086

PMID: 7447838

DOI: 10.2307/1589806

Alcaligenes faecalis infection in turkey poults resulted in impaired function of the cellular immune system, as evidenced by histopathologic changes and reduced size of the thymus and by decreased lymphocyte stimulation. Abnormalities of the humoral immune system were not detected.
