Experimental Vaccine May Provide Better Salmonella Control

USPOULTRY and the USPOULTRY Foundation announce the completion of a funded research project at the U.S. National Poultry Research Center, USDA ARS, in Athens, Ga., in which a researcher completed initial steps toward developing an experimental vaccine that may provide better salmonella control in poultry. The research was made possible by an endowing Foundation gift from Cal-Maine Foods and is part of the Association’s comprehensive research program encompassing all phases of poultry and egg production and processing.

The research project: Development and Production of Salmonella Multi-Serotypic and Multi-Subunit Vaccines for Hens was completed by Dr. Hung-Yueh Yeh, a researcher at the U.S. National Poultry Research Center, USDA ARS, in Athens, Ga.

Dr.  Hung-Yueh Yeh identified and purified multiple proteins from salmonella which when combined in a vaccine provided significant protection against salmonella colonization of the intestinal tract of chickens. Further refinement of this experimental vaccine may provide a valuable food safety tool for the poultry and egg industry.
