Consequently, the major potential of epitope vaccine ensembles is that of inducing desirable T and B cell-mediated immune responses. The risk of causing pathogenic or off-target responses with epitope vaccines is thus much lower than with convectional vaccines and can, on that basis, be regarded as safer.
"Previous studies in animals and simple model organisms over the past 85 years have supported the notion that calorie restriction can increase the lifespan by reducing inflammation and other chronic disease risk factors, but with mixed results about whether it has a negative or null effect on cell-mediated immune responses," said first and corresponding author Simin Nikbin Meydani, D.V.M., Ph.D., director of the Jean Mayer USDA Human Nutrition Research Center on Aging at Tufts (HNRCA) and the director of its Nutritional Immunology Laboratory.
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.
