Description

Hyperpericardium syndrome is caused by Fowl adenovirus type 4 which inflicts mass economic damage in the poultry industry on a world wide scale. The most efficient way to manage HPS up to date was using inactivated vaccine constructed from a whole virus. However, the whole virus vaccines lacked efficacy against variously mutating HPS antigens, which acted as a drawback of whole virus vaccines. Thus, the aim of this study is establishing a system capable of mass producing the Hexon protein, which is a important antigenic determinant in adenoviruses.
