Abstract: 
The effect of dietary level of vitamin E (VE) on performance and immune response of broilers was studied. Immunity was assessed as antibody production to Infectious Bronchitis virus (IBV) and Newcastle Disease virus (NDV), mitogenic response to phytohemagglutinin A (PHA) and concanavalin A (conA), cutaneous basophil hypersensitivity (CBH) to PHA. A range of vitamin E (0.25, 50, 75, and 100 IU/kg) were supplemented to a basal diet (corn-soy) containing NRC (1994) recommendation of vitamin E per kg of diet. Maximum body weight gain, daily weight gain (22-42d) and efficiency of feed utilization were obtained in chicks fed diets with supplemented 50Iu/kg vitamin E. Lymphoid organ weights and daily weight gain (0-21) were not influenced by VE. Hum oral immunologic response showed that antibody titer to Newcastle disease vaccines were highest (P<0.05) in groups receiving 50 IU/kg diet VE. Adding 50 and 75 IU/kg VE to the diets significantly increased (P<0.05) antibody responses to IBY. CBH to PHA was significantly increased (P<0.05) in chicken fed 50, 75 and 100 IU vitamin E. Mitogenic responses were improved (P<0.05) by supplemented 75 IU vitamin E for PHA. Overall, the results of this experiment showed that 50 and 75 IU/kg VE, improved some of performance parameters and immune response in broiler chicks, respectively.
