High Pathogenecity Avian Influenza (HPAI) viruses have high virulence and can frequently causesudden death on birds. The aims of this research was to know the role of Spirulina to a number ofmonocytes and lymphocytes in the blood of chickens which infected with the H5N1 virus. This researchconsisted of three levels of treatment in which each level given Spirulina 0%, 10%, 20% in the fresh wateralgae as drinking water. Each treatment consisted of seven replicates, and the treatment was done sincethe chickens at age 19 until 44 days ( for 25 days). Artificial infection of the chickens with the virus waschallenged by using AI (H5N1) 104 EID 50 (A/Ck/Indonesia/BL/03) with route to the respiratory tract (nosedrops) 0,1 mL starting on day 19. The results showed that there were a significant difference (p<0.05) ontreatment that given Spirulina at doses of 0%, 10% and 20% for the number ofn monocytes, eosinophils,whereas no significant difference (p > 0.05) was observed in basophils.
