Infectious bursal disease (IBD) remains a major threat to the poultry industry. Recombinant herpesvirus of turkey (rHVT)-IBD vaccines have been successfully used to induce a protective immune response against IBD. However, the capacity for rHVT-IBD vaccines to induce early protection without detectable antibodies, and the underlying mechanisms mediating specific cell-mediated responses in the early stages following vaccination, have been poorly investigated. Therefore, in this study, specific pathogen-free (SPF) chickens were vaccinated with rHVT-IBD and T-cell subsets were analyzed. Both s…
