Immune modulators are being increasingly used in animal production as they enable producers to move towards antibiotic-free animal agriculture. Immune modulators are a class of drugs that activate or boost an animal's immune system to better control the development of diseases in animal and its transmission to humans.
Companies involved in this industry often use antibiotics for growth promotion and therapeutic reasons. However, due to the pressure from consumer groups and rights activists, these companies are turning towards these modulators which protect consumers' health. According to a report by Pew Charitable Trusts, "Immune modulators are effective against a broad range of pathogens as they energize the immunity system in a way that is less dependent on the pathogen causing infection".
Further, a broad range of antibiotics alternatives have been developed for various implementations. In chickens, egg-yolk antibodies used in immune modulators have remarkably reduce the risk of necrotic enteritis. The efficacy of same antibodies in swine enables prevention of diarrhea caused by variety of pathogens. In the USA, an immune modulator was developed to prevent udder infections in dairy cows after birth and recently received an approval from the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
