Immunomodulation in Domestic Food Animals covers the developments in the immunology and regulation of the immune response in domestic food animals. This book is organized into four parts encompassing 12 chapters that describe numerous factors affecting an immune response of animals and the management of these factors for food animal production. Part I provides an overview of the basic concepts of immunomodulation and the rationale for manipulating the immune response in food animals. Part II contains information on immunopotentiation using chemicals and a thorough discussion of adjuvant use. The molecular biology and in vivo use of cytokines in food animals is presented in Part III. Lastly, Part IV discusses physiologically regulated immunomodulation, including nutritional modulation of the immune response and neuroendocrine-immune interactions. This book is of great value to immunologists, microbiologists, and feed scientists and researchers.
