Research Studies:

  1. Comparative expression analysis of immune-related cytokines in Philippine native chicken and duck embryonic fibroblasts stimulated with heat-inactivated Riemerella anatipestifer serotypes 1 and 7.
  2. Gene expression analysis of inflammation-associated cytokines and toll-like receptors in Pseudomonas aeruginosa-stimulated Philippine native chicken and duck embryonic fibroblasts.
  3. Analysis of multiple immune-related cytokine genes expressed in response to inactivated Pasteurella multocida serotype A in Philippine native chicken and duck embryonic fibroblasts.
  4. Attenuation of Riemerella anatipestifer infection in ducks by 3,3’-Diindolylmethane by suppressing Th17 immune responses.
  5. Molecular identification, characterization and functional analysis of duck interleukin-22 in Riemerella anatipestifer infection.
  6. Establishment of parameters for the assessment of anti-coccidial drugs against Eimeria acervulina, Eimeria maxima and Eimeria tenella in broiler chickens.
