Description

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.
