Emergence of new variants of viruses and new diseases in poultry leads to growth of the number of infections that require vaccination. Under the present circumstances, scientific approach to diagnostic testing and preventive measures, based on knowledge of epizootology, biological properties of pathogens, principles of immunology as well as classical and new methods of research is very important.
