Safglucan® purified yeast fraction concentrated in 1.3/1.6 beta-glucans
For a decade, only the adaptive immune system was described as having the ability to remember the pathogens it had already encountered. More recently, innate immunity has been shown to adapt after its first contact with a pathogen, demonstrating an enhanced immune response to a second unrelated immune challenge (vaccines, bacteria…) called trained immunity. This immune training is characterised as having an enhanced state of the innate immune responses.
Some 1.3/1.6 beta-glucans, isolated from yeast, are among the few molecules which are able to induce trained immunity. Safglucan® is one of the most promising complementary tools in the animal preventive care arsenal, helping to protect health in many species, including pets, cattle, swine, poultry, and farmed fish.
By helping to offer animals better immunity, and therefore a limited use of antibiotics, Safglucan® guarantees quality animal production, limits breeding costs and contributes to the One Health concept.
