Table 1 Effect of anti-IL17A Ab on E. tenella infection.

From: IL-17A regulates Eimeria tenella schizont maturation and migration in avian coccidiosis

Treatment group Lesion score (scale of 0–4)
No infection, no anti-IL17A Ab administration 0a
Infection, no anti-IL17A Ab administration 2.5 ± 0.49b
Infection, anti-IL17A Ab administration 1.1 ± 0.4c
  1. Each value represents the mean ± SD of three independent antibody administration/infection trials. Within each parameter values with different superscripts are significantly different (p < 0.05) according to Duncan’s multiple range test. The statistical analysis detected significant differences among experimental groups. Birds infected and inoculated with anti-IL17A Ab showed significant lower lesion scores than infected and non-inoculated birds (p < 0.05).
