Vaccine strains and recent experiences with serological testing following field vaccination with TS-11 and MS-H in a broiler breeder operation in Australia

Kevin G. Whithear and Peter C. Scott


Vaccination is becoming increasingly accepted as an effective tool for controlling mycoplasma infections in breeder and layer flocks(Whithear, 1996). Strain ts-11 (Whithear et al., 1990) and strain MS-H (Morrow et al., 1998) are attenuated vaccine strains that are used to control Mycoplasma gallisepticum (MG) and M. synoviae (MS), respectively.
