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 ...
Immunological evaluation of DNA vaccines against Haemonchus contortus and Toxoplasma gondii in sheep
(Lincoln University, 2006)
Plasmid DNA vaccines which encode selected antigenic proteins direct protein expression in mammalian cells after vaccination. The use of DNA vaccines has been shown to be a promising approach to induce specific humoral and ...
The serological response of sheep to DNA immunisation against Toxoplasma gondii : a dissertation submitted in partial fulfilment of the requirements for the degree of Master of Applied Science at Lincoln University
(Lincoln University, 2008)
The administration of DNA vaccine has been suggested as a promising method to increase specific humoral and cellular immune response against Toxoplasma gondii (T. gondii) infection. In the current study, the serological ...
