Although it is likely that the presence of Eimeria oocysts and endemic viruses varies qualitatively and quantitatively between flocks and, by extension, varies between different used litter types, we believe that these data provide evidence that exposure of growing chicks to used poultry litter stimulates humoral and cell-mediated immune responses, presumably due to contact with contaminating enteric pathogens.
Useful as a study guide as well as a text, this version has completely updated information on innate immunity, antigen capture and presentation in lymphocytes, antigen recognition in the adaptive immune system, cell-mediated immune response, effector mechanisms of cell-mediates immunity, humoral immune responses, effector mechanisms of humoral immunity, immunologic tolerance and autoimmunity, immune responses against tumors and transplants, hypersensitivity diseases and congenital and acquired immunodeficiencies.
Current activities towards developing more effective treatment strategies for HIV/AIDS-related malignancies include: 1) targeting molecules in the angiogenesis and apoptotic pathways; 2) fortifying the immune system using immunomodulatory molecules, vaccines designed to increase the cell-mediated immune responses to viral antigens, and monoclonal antibodies to eliminate cancer cells; 3) targeting EBV or KSHV to disrupt the viral life cycle; 4) investigating low morbidity anal lesion ablation techniques, and 5) combining standard chemotherapy regimens with biologic therapies.
Immunologists believe that people who survived the plague must have had a vigorous, cell-mediated immune response.
