Effects of chronic lung inflammation on tryptophan metabolism in piglets.

Abstract

A fundamental question in animal nutrition is the amino acid requirement induced by inflammation and immune response. The aim of the present experiment was to study the effect of chronic lung inflammation induced by injection of complete Freund adjuvant on amino acid metabolism in pigs. For 10 days, we compared plasma haptoglobine and amino acid… (More)
