Effect of immunostimulant pronutrients in fattening pigs
This study, carried out in China, aimed to evaluate the effect on blood parameters of the use of a compound based on immunostimulant pronutrients in swine.
There were 30 pigs of 30 kg in each batch, which had been separated into 3 more groups (3 replicates per batch). On day 34th of the trial, 6 blood samples from each group were collected randomly.
Batch treated with immunostimulant pronutrients (batch 2) showed statistically significant differences (p <0.05) in the IgM, IgA, and IgG antibody values compared to the other two batches (batch 1 – control and batch 2 – Astragalus polysaccharides) (Charts 1, 2 and 3).
This trial demonstrated that the compound based on immunostimulant pronutrients significantly increased the specific immunity in fattening pigs.
These immunostimulant pronutrients are commercially available under the name Alquernat Immuplus, by Biovet S.A. Laboratories.
