Efficacy of vaccination with inactivated vaccines against Newcastle disease when applied in day old chickens


Newcastle disease (ND) is a highly contagious avian disease that a ects multiple systems in birds and can cause significant mortality in chickens that have not been vaccinated. Prevention and control e orts, including vaccination and strict biosecurity measures, are crucial in industrial poultry production.

Considering the short life cycle of chickens nowadays, generating a proper immune response against diseases as early as possible is of paramount importance for field veterinary practice.
