Chicks of a conventional poultry flock, Shaver Starcross 288 hybrid, were vaccinated with infectious bronchitis (IB) virus H 120 at the age of 21 days. Three weeks later, the chicks were divided into three groups and separate groups were infected with infectious bronchitis viruses M 41 and D 274 or revaccinated with virus H 120. The content of specific antibodies to antigens prepared from homologous and heterologous viruses of infectious bronchitis used for chick vaccination and infection was investigated at regular intervals in the separate groups of chicks by means of an ELISA technique and haemagglutination-inhibition test (HIT). Serotype specificity of haemagglutination-inhibition test was documented by the results
