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 ...
Estimates of the nutritional cost of the development of immunity to gastrointestinal parasites in sheep
(Lincoln University, 2005)
This thesis describes a series of three experiments designed to estimate the nutritional cost of the immune response to the gastrointestinal nematodes Trichostrongylus colubriformis and Teladorsagia circumcincta in sheep. ...
