Advances in Veterinary Science and Comparative Medicine: Immunomodulation in Domestic Food Animals v. 35
This volume amalgamates current knowledges of "in vitro" and "in vivo" use of immunomodulators in livestock. It includes rationale for their use, model systems, chemically-induced immunopotentiation, mechanism of action, cytokine therapy, modulation by nutrient supplementation, and neuro-endocrine immuno-interaction.
