A comparison of cell-mediated immune responses in rhesus macaques housed singly, in pairs, or in groups
Contributor(s):: Schapiro, S. J., Nehete, P. N., Perlman, J. E., Sastry, K. J.
A variety of psychosocial factors have been shown to influence immunological responses in laboratory primates. The present investigation examined the effects of social housing condition on cell-mediated immune responses, comparing rhesus macaques (Macaca mulatta) in three housing conditions...
Behaviour and welfare in relation to pathology
Contributor(s):: Broom, D. M.
Behaviour is an important way of adapting to disease for individuals and selective pressures resulting from disease have had major consequences for the evolution of behaviour. Behaviour, adrenal and other physiological responses, immunological responses and brain activity all help in coping with...
Effect of surgical castration on the behavioural and acute phase responses of 5-day-old piglets
Contributor(s):: Moya, S. L., Boyle, L. A., Lynch, P. B., Arkins, S.
Pain and discomfort provoked by surgical castration of male pigs causes behavioural alterations that are particularly evident in the immediate days following this procedure. Less information is available in relation to whether the physiological consequences of surgical castration also persist...
Surgical castration of pigs affects the behavioural response to a low-dose lipopolysaccharide (LPS) challenge after weaning
The objective of the present study was to evaluate the effect of an acute stressor in the early postnatal life of pigs, surgical castration, on post-weaning behaviour, and on the behavioural, endocrine and immune responses elicited by a low-dose lipopolysaccharide (LPS) challenge after weaning....
