The effect of Immunovet on the health of the intestinal tract

According to a recent study, Immunovet can be used effectively in the prevention and treatment of damage to the intestinal epithelium caused by bacterial intestinal infections.

Intestinal infections caused by bacteria often occur in both our companion and farm animals, which are associated with symptoms of diarrhea, abdominal pain, in severe cases, fever and poor general condition. They are often caused by Gram-negative bacteria (e.g. E. coli and Salmonella species), whose cell walls contain a substance called endotoxin (LPS). During intestinal infections, the release of this endotoxin causes a significant part of the damage, as it can trigger inflammation, oxidative stress and damage to the integrity of the intestinal epithelial cells, as a result of which the protective layer formed by the intestinal epithelium is damaged, and the bacteria and endotoxin can enter the blood circulation, causing harmful effects on the whole body. causing effects.

In a recent study at the University of Veterinary Medicine, the effect of Immunovet was tested on intestinal epithelial cells (derived from pigs) treated with bacterial endotoxin, modeling the process of intestinal infections. In the course of the research, they found that Immunovet is capable of mitigating all three harmful processes caused by endotoxin, that is, it also showed anti-inflammatory, antioxidant and integrity-protecting effects in the tested system. Based on all this, it can be said that Immunovet can be suitable for protection against bacterial intestinal infections, thereby contributing to the preservation of the health of our animals.
