Antibodies Chicken eggs present an ideal alternative antibody source to mammals, as the IgY in the chicken’s blood is transported to the egg and accumulates in the egg yolk in large quantities. This simple non invasive approach presents an appealing alternative to conventional polyclonal antibody production methods. This mini review offers production of edible antibodies used for passive immunization.
