Immunogenicity of Haemophilus paragallinarum serovar B strains.
Immunogenicity of three Haemophilus paragallinarum serovar B strains was investigated in cross-protection tests using monovalent vaccines prepared from the B strains, as well as one strain each of serovars A and C. A bivalent vaccine composed of the serovar A and C strains also was used. In the studies with the monovalent vaccines, the immunogenicity of serovar B strains was different from that of serovar A and C strains, although only partial serovar B-specific protection with the three strains was observed. Chickens vaccinated with the bivalent vaccine protected against challenge with one serovar B strain, as well as serovar A and C strains, but not against the other two serovar B strains.
