P. Bolfă, Marina Spînu, Carmen Dana Şandru, G. Tănase

Abstract


Equine infectious anemia (EIA) represents an economically important viral disease with a strong autoimmune component and with and severe epidemiological consequences for equine medicine (1). The phagocytic function represents one of the important aspects of the innate immunity, while the blast transformation is a measure of the specific cell-mediated reactivity.
