Interpretive Summary:

Technical Abstract: We developed Newcastle disease virus (NDV) LaSota (rLS) expressing a distinct spike (S) protein gene of infectious bronchitis virus (IBV). This recombinant vaccine technology confers cross-protection among different IBV strains. We also experimentally demonstrated that the recombinant construct maintains the biological properties of the parental NDV and provides complete protection against challenge with velogenic NDV.
