The effect of vitamin E on immune responses and disease resistance is now well established and has been covered in recent reviews (Axelrod, 1978; Nockels, 1978; Sheffy and Schultz, 1979; Tengerdy, 1978). Predictably, vitamin E ([dl])-α-tocopheryl-acetate) deficiency leads to impaired immune response and disease protection (Axelrod, 1978). Large doses of vitamin E, much larger than the presently accepted recommended minimal daily allowance, on the other hand, enhance certain immune responses and can lead to increased disease resistance in a number of animal species against a variety of infectious agents. Table I. illustrates this point.
