Project: Immunomodulating effect of oligosaccharides in the food on the vaccination of piglets against postweaning diarrhea.

project duration
01-OCT-99 – 31-MAY-01
Prophylaxis of postweaning diarrhea caused by enterotoxigenic Escherichia coli (ETEC) by oral vaccination with the F4 antigen and/or by foodadditives, such as oligosaccharides as immunomodulator or other bacterial colonisation blocking additives. A tested oligosaccharide protected the piglets against an F4+ETEC infection, therefore other oligosaccharides will be analysed for their protective effects against a F4+ETEC challenge.
