The experiment was conducted to evaluate the effect of dietary supplementation with 0, 50, 100 and 200 mg/kg of beta-1,3/1,6-glucan extracted from Saccharomyces cerevisiae on cellular immune responses and classical swine fever virus (CSFV) antibody production of weaned piglets. Thirty-two (Landrace x Large White; 26 days old; 7.05+/-0.25 kg body weight) castrated male piglets were randomly allocated to four treatments, eight pigs per treatment. All piglets were vaccinated with live-attenuated… CONTINUE READING
