The Bio-Rad porcine research antibody range provides monoclonal antibodies to CD markers, cytokines and immunoglobulins, and recombinant porcine cytokine proteins, to study immune responses in pigs.
Manipulation of the immune system through vaccination and immunomodulators, as well as recognizing alterations in the immune response induced by pathogens, is critical for the successful production of pigs. Understanding the key aspects of swine reproduction and porcine infectious diseases, such as Porcine Reproductive and Respiratory Syndrome Virus (PRRSV), and classical swine fever, leads to improvements in disease management and pork meat quality and safety.

Pigs also have an excellent track record as animal models addressing many human health issues; they share many similarities with humans, making them a valuable experimental model for human health and for the purposes of medical skill education, the development of new devices and therapeutic strategies, and transplantation research.
Pig animal models have been used in transplantation research with successful outcomes in cardiovascular clinical work, and more recently in stem cell therapies. In addition, a wide range of bacterial, viral, cancer, and inflammatory disease translational research has leveraged the pig’s anatomical and histological similarities to humans.
Understanding key aspects of porcine immunity improve animal health and help develop better translational animal models.
