A vaccination failure occurs when the chickens do not develop suitable antibody titer levels and/or are susceptible to a field disease outbreak. Therefore, an updated review has been thoroughly developed in order to highlight the importance of detecting and solving the major vaccination failures in commercial chickens.
Infectious bronchitis is an acute and highly contagious respiratory disease of chickens characterized by respiratory signs comprising gasping, coughing, sneezing, tracheal rales and nasal discharge. In addition, severe respiratory distress may occur in young chickens. Respiratory distress, decrease in egg production, and loss of internal egg quality and eggshell quality have been reported in layers. Some strains of the virus produce severe kidney damage and may be associated with high mortality.
