Abstract

This volume contains papers presented at a seminar in the CEC programme of Coordination of Research on animal pathology, held in Venice 27th - 28th April 1983. The foci of interest were: interferon, adjuvants; immunomodulators; practical applications. Among the results on interferon: it may have indirect effects, e.g. by influencing antibody production and macrophage activity; many aspects of its mode of action and of the manipulation of its synthesis still to be done; early days for clinical applications: more research developments needed. Among the results concerning adjuvants a mass of information accumulated on the effects and modes of action of a few of them, but in all a poorly understood field; its exploration ought to follow research into immune expression and control of the immune response. Adjuvants can influence the gut immune response. Further parameters for investigation of adjuvants were discussed. Among further topics: surface receptor of macrophages (of relevance for the complete understanding of immune events); immune development and competence in the young animal.
