The detection of ChIFN production after ex vivo antigenic-stimulation of T-lymphocytes has been evaluated for the first time, as a tool to assess cell-mediated immunity (CMI) after avian influenza (AI) infection in 10-day-old SPF chickens. Preliminarily, recall antigens have been produced either by concentrating and inactivating the whole virus or by dissociating the viral proteins. Biologically and structurally intact forms of the viral proteins were isolated by non-ionic detergents while heating, chemical agents and ionic detergent used for virus inactivation altered the antigenic viral c…
