Activation of cutaneous immunity by percutaneous absorption of chemical through the stratum corneum is well established; however, given the long dissolution half-life for beryllium metal and its alloys, we hypothesized that beryllium particles would have to colocalize with the cutaneous antigen-presenting cell in the epidermis in order to activate a cell-mediated immune response.

Although it is likely that the presence of Eimeria oocysts and endemic viruses varies qualitatively and quantitatively between flocks and, by extension, varies between different used litter types, we believe that these data provide evidence that exposure of growing chicks to used poultry litter stimulates humoral and cell-mediated immune responses, presumably due to contact with contaminating enteric pathogens.
