Abstract

The effect of various routes of immunization on protection against challenge by virulent agents was examined in chickens. Chickens were immunized intratracheally, intranasally, per os, by crop gavage, and intramuscularly. Agents examined were killed Haemophilus paragallinarum, Mycoplasma gallisepticum, and infectious bursal disease virus. Results of immunization by intratracheal administration were equivalent to those produced by parenteral administration. All vaccines effectively induced production of serum antibodies against pathogens, and all immunized chickens were protected against infection by each pathogen. /// En pollos se examinó el efecto de varias vías de inmunización sobre la protección contra agentes virulentos. Los pollos fueron inmunizados por las vías intratraqueal, intranasal, oral, inoculación directa en el buche e intramuscular. Los agentes examinados incluyeron Haemophilus paragallinarum, Mycoplasma gallisepticum, o enfermedad infecciosa de la bolsa. Los resultados de inmunización por medio de la administración intratraqueal fueron equivalentes a los producidos por la administración parenteral. Todas las vacunas indujeron la producción de anticuerpos séricos contra los patógenos respectivos. Todos los pollos inmunizados fueron protegidos contra la infección con cada patógeno.
