Abstract

The avian immune system is reviewed. The avian immune system differs from that of mammals, mainly in the presence or absence of lymphoid organ and in the histology of these organs, in the antibody response, in the generation of diversity of antibodies, and in the transfer of maternal immunity. The chicken immune system is mainly discussed, since most of the research on the avian immune system has been performed using this bird.
