Abstract


Encephalitis was induced in chicken using homologous extracts of brain tissue in Freund's adjuvant. Histologically there was mild encephalitis and demyelination. There was no significant difference in the lesion in the chicken administered single and booster dose of the antigen. Immunologically mediated reaction was evident at the local site where the antigen was administered.
