Abstract: Baby chickens developed greater protection against a very virulent strain of Marek’s disease virus if they were given the herpesvirus of turkey (HVT) vaccine alongside interferon-γ. Interferon-γ enhanced the immune response, decreased the incidence of tumours, lowered viral loads, and lowered rates of viral replication.
