Effect of Mineral Diatomaceous Earth-based Drugs on Adaptive Reactions in Weaned Pigs


The effects of diatomaceous earth-based drugs, Diatomite and Biokoretron, on morphofunctional parameters, blood chemistry, antibody mediated non-specific immunity and growth of post-weaning pigs were investigated. The studies showed that both drugs had growth promoting and antianemic effects on the weaned pigs, increased the protein and mineral metabolism rate, and stimulated non-specific immunity factors.
