Objectives of the Course
Get to obtain an information about the concept of immunity, antibody mediated immune responses, cell-mediated immune responses, the control of the immune system, mechanisms of immune responses against bacteria, virus and toxins, vaccines and prophylactic therapies in veterinary medicine, practices for monitoring of vaccine effectiveness and hypersensitivity reactions.

Learning Outcomes
  1. At the end of this course, immune mechanisms against extracellular, intracellular bacteria and toxins will be understood.
  2. The most effective prevention methods and the most common vaccines will be learned.
  3. The use of serological tests based on antibody detection will be learned in order to determine or monitor the immune and infection.
