We will investigate host immune response to clostridium infection in broiler chickens using various in vitro and in vito immunological and molecular biological assays. Immune parameters affecting local host immune response to gut pathogens such as lymphocyte subpopulations and cytokine response will be examined using molecular biological and immunological tools.
