The effects of thyroxine (TX) or propylthiouracil (PPT) administration on the antibody forming activity agains t sheep red blood cell (SRBC) and Newcastle disease virus (NDV) were studied by using of hemagglutination and hemagglutination-inhibition techniques. Antibody titers to both SRBC and NDV increased significantly in the TX-treated group, whereas decreased in the PPT-treated group, compared with control. When TX was administered after antigen inoculatioon, antibody forming activity was significantly enhanced, compared with the TX administration before antigen inoculation.
