Nutrition and immunometabolic adaptations to lactation in dairy cows: role in performance and health
Prof. Juan Loor (University of Illinois, Animal Sciences)
Immunometabolism represents the interface between immunology and metabolism, and is an emerging field of investigation in livestock biosciences. In human medicine, immunometabolism recognizes the link between obesity and the immune system, explicitly acknowledging that obesity-induced inflammation promotes onset of chronic disorders. The field of immunometabolism as it pertains to periparturient dairy cows is in its infancy. Ongoing focus is on the bi-directional communication between immune and metabolic cells with signaling molecules derived intrinsically or as a result of intermediary metabolism or immune responses in tissues such as liver, adipose, and skeletal muscle
