Poulvac® ST is a genetically modified live vaccine developed from a strain of Salmonella Typhimurium (STM-1). This serovar shows the configuration of lipopolysaccharide and flagella those common antigens of group B in which (SH) is found, indicating the possibility of good heterologous immune response. This study aims to assess the effectiveness of Poulvac® ST in controlling Salmonella Heidelberg in broilers in both the intestine and in the viscera.
