Antibodies of anti-ochratoxin A (anti-OTA) were prepared by immunizing white rabbits and Luoman hens. The immune responses to OTA of these two animals were compared. It was concluded that the immune response of white rabbits was faster than Luoman hens'. The anti-OTA IgG of rabbits was produced after 30 d while the anti-OTA IgY was produced after 60 d. The top titre of anti-OTA IgG was 3-4 times of the titre of anti-OTA IgY's.
