Coccidial and clostridial interactions in broilers vaccinated against coccidiosis (2003 special, coccidiosis 4)

A possible relationship between coccidial and clostridial infections in commercial broilers has long been controversial, not least because of the problems of interpretation caused by the use of in-feed ionophorous drugs, which may be active against both pathogens. The results of definitive, controlled laboratory experiments are now beginning to provide a better understanding of interactions between coccidia and clostridia, and the effects of using anticoccidial vaccines.
