Effect of immunostimulation by detoxified E. coli lipopolysaccharide combined with inactivated Propionibacterium granulosum cells on porcine immunity.

The aim of this experiment was to evaluate the immunomodulating activities of inactivated Propionibacterium granulosum cell walls and E. coli lipopolysaccharide (PG/LPS) on porcine immunity. Piglets were intramuscularly administered PG/LPS (1 ml/10 kg body weight) once or twice. The function of natural killer cells, lymphocytes and neutrophils and the… (More)
