An immunogenomics approach to understanding periparturient immunosuppression and mastitis susceptibility in dairy cows.

Abstract

Studies comparing in vivo and in vitro functional capacities of leukocytes from non-parturient and periparturient dairy cows have provided substantial evidence that systemic and local mammary immune defenses are deficient around parturition. This evidence has lead to the reasonable hypothesis that immune deficiency underlies the heightened mastitis… (More)
