Passive immunity against diarrhoea.

Author information

Department of Clinical Immunology, Huddinge Hospital, Sweden.


Passive immunity against a variety of respiratory and gastrointestinal pathogens has recently been increasingly used clinically, and oral administration of antibodies of both human and non-human origin has been tried both for prophylaxis and treatment of infections. Although the former type of therapy has been shown to be effective, data on the latter are still scarce. This commentary focuses on recent studies on successful oral therapeutic administration of bovine immunoglobulins.
