Protective and deleterious intestinal immune responses: the case of a protozoan infection

Speaker: Dr Fabrice LAURENT, Avian Pathology Department, INRA, France

Parasites affect the intestinal integrity. Innate immunity is important, particularly for neonates and young animals, in controlling pathogens in the intestine. Immuno-stimulation of innate immunity is a promising strategy for controlling parasite development. Host microbiota composition is not only important for intestinal immune development but also to modulate host response during infection or immunomodulatory treatments. An optimal microbiota may thus help to resist to parasite challenge.
