Macrophages from inbred chickens that are resistant to salmonellosis show greater and more rapid expression of proinflammatory chemokines and cytokines, including the key Th1-inducing cytokine interleukin-18, upon Salmonella challenge than those from susceptible birds. This suggests the possibility that salmonellosis resistant-line macrophages signal more effectively and rapidly and are more able to induce protective Th1 adaptive responses.
