  1. Abbreviations: Grp (group), ID (identification number), Dpi (days post infection), Ct (Ct values), Copies (copies per mg organ), TCID (tissue culture infectious dose 50 per mg organ), N (no Ct value). Viral genome copies of brain, spleen, kidney and heart of all surviving birds of the vaccination groups were compared to the respective values of group E with one-sided Wilcoxon rank sum test with continuity correction and those with statistical significant difference were indicated with an asterisk (p-values < α-levels of 0.05 were classified as significant).
