Abstract

We present data from our studies in pigs which demonstrate the existence of breed and sex differences and of seasonal variation in the majority of cellular and humoral immunological parameters measured . There peatability was high concerning immunoglobulin levels inserum and T-cell  dependent cellular parameters as well as the results of a phagocytosis assay . B-cell dependent parameters however , showed only poor repeatability .
