BACrMd5-REV-LTR is a MD vaccine that contains the LTR of REV into the genome of vvMDV rMd5. This study shows that BACrMd5-REV-LTR subcutaneously administrated at day of age conferred high protection against an early challenge with vv+MDV 648A strain. Furthermore, BACrMd5-REV-LTR did not induce any immunosuppression (transient or permanent).
