Effects of Safglucan® on immune system modulation
Phileo by Lesaffre has also developed a solution called Safglucan®, in which beta-glucans 1.3 and 1.6 are purified, reaching more than 50% of the composition of the product. Its immune system activity is more targeted, while Safmannan® has a broader effect. Safglucan® is used at 125g/T during the second half of the rearing period, to boost vaccine response, creating the highest possible antibody peak when layers arrive at egg production sites.
Safmannan® can help improve the resistance of birds naturally contaminated with wild pathogens, and like Safglucan®, can help improve the protection of birds after vaccination. When birds are contaminated with viruses, both products can reduce the spread of the virus, reducing the quantity and the duration of virus excretion by infected birds.
