Project: Immunomodulation of the systemic immune response towards a mucosal immune response in the pig.
- project duration
- 01-JAN-98 – 31-DEC-00
- The immunomodulating potential of calcitriol and calcitriol analogues on the immune response following intramuscular immunisation will be determined. Hereto, the IgG, IgA and IgM antigen-specific serum antibodies and antibody secreting cells, even as the cytokine production of lymphocytes will be determined in the draining lymph nodes and in the mucosa-associated lymphoid tissues.
