Gene for Chicken Interleukin 15...
Our researchers have cloned chicken IL-15 and related avian lymphokines for use as avian vaccine adjuvants. The inventors have shown experimentally that chicken IL-15 can enhance vaccine effectiveness in chickens. Background & Unmet Need: Most chickens produced in developed countries for consumption and egg-laying (at least 10 billion per yea...
