The project reported on herein was aimed at undertaking vaccine efficacy, safety and adventitious agent testing prior to the conduct of a field trial for the registration of one of these candidate vaccine strains for use in Australian poultry flocks. The benefits to the industry to accrue from this work will be the availability of a new FPV vaccine strain that is more immunogenic than the currently available vaccine strains. The new vaccine strain should be suitable to boost immunity to FPV in mature age birds and thus reduce the losses in broiler breeder flocks associated with fowl pox disease.
