Immunotoxic substances such as mycotoxins are
unsuspected players in the failure of vaccines to provoke a
proper immune response. Vaccines are commonly used to
prevent various pathogenic challenges of viral, bacterial,
and protozoan origins that usually lead to diseases
affecting health and performance of livestock. G. Raj
Murugesan, Technical & Marketing Director and Erika Hendel,
Swine Technical Manager at Biomin, give an insight into two
major types of vaccines normally used in swine production
and two different mechanisms involved in establishing an
immune response.
