	  abstract     = {The avian phytohaemagglutinin skin test is being
proved as an in vivo system for the evaluation an avian in vivo T cell
mitogenicity. The test system was one week old Gallus domesticus
broiler Chickens. Five replicates were done for each of the whole,
1:10 dilutions of each of 0.05 IU tuberculin, tetanus immunoglobulin
and DPT vaccine as test materials. The evaluation parameters were
the skin indurations and lymphoblast percentages in bone marrow
Tuberculin indurations were 2.06 and 1.26mm for 0.05 IU
respectively while lymphoblast percent were 0.234 and 0.1
The skin indurations of 135mg/ml and 1.35mg/ml tetanus
immunoglobulin were 4.86 and 3.96mm while lymphoblast
percentages were 0.3 and 0.14 respectively.
The whole DPT and 1:10 concentration were with 4.5 and 3.2mm
while their lymphoblast percentages were 0.28 and 0.12 accordingly.
Thus the mitogenicity of the test materials was of dependant type.
