Nutritional and immunological interrelationships in response to nematode infections in periparturient ewes
(Lincoln University, 2004)
The periparturient rise in gastrointestinal (GI) nematode egg output from the ewe is a well-established phenomenon. The immune function of the host is thought to relax during this period. Nutrition may play an important ...
The effect of vaccinating infection during pregnancy and dietary protein supply on the peri-parturient immune response of sheep to infection with Teladorsagia circumcincta and Trichostrongylus colubriformis larvae
(Cambridge University Press, 2007-03)
It is well established that dietary protein supply can influence the peri-parturient breakdown of immunity to nematode parasites but there is no information on the importance of exposure to nematode larvae during pregnancy ...
