Abstract:

New duck disease / riemerellosis, reported in Kerala from 2008 onwards from various parts of the state, causing severe economic loss in the duck industry. A Gram negative bacterium, Riemerella anatipestifer was identified as the causative agent. Due to the presence of 21 serotypes of the organism with little/ no cross-protection, development of an effective vaccine is the only solution to curtail the disease. The present study was conducted to assess the cell mediated immune (CMI) response elicited by inactivated and subunit vaccines against riemerellosis, employing lymphocyte proliferation assay (LPA) and leukocyte migration inhibition test (LMIT). The inactivated vaccine evoked significant CMI response in host system and LPA could be identified as an effective tool for assessing it.
