The immune competence and disease resistance in Gramapriya, a rural poultry germplasm at 6 weeks age were studied. The sheep red blood cells and New-castle disease virus were used as T dependent antigen to quantify the antibody response and in-vivo mitogen PHA-P to quantify the lymph proliferative cell-mediated immune response. Between both the sexes, a significant (P<0.01) difference was observed with respect to cell mediated immunity to PHA-P with the overall mean value of 0.75 ± 0.07 mm. Whereas, no significant difference was found between males and females in humoral immune response against sheep RBC and Newcastle Disease Virus vaccine with overall mean titre values of 6.57 ± 0.41 and 4.47 ± 0.17 for SRBC and NDV titres (log2 values), respectively.

Key words: Disease resistance, Immune competence, Newvastle Disease Virus vaccine, PHA-P, Sheep RBC
