Summary and Implications

Two chemokines were expressed in the cecum at higher levels in Salmonella enteritidis (SE)-infected chicks than in uninfected chicks. These chemokines are known to attract macrophages and influence migration of these immune cells to the site of infection. Understanding organspecific immune response of young chickens will provide novel insights into strategies like vaccine development or host genetics aimed at reduction in SE contamination of poultry products.
