Crystalline ochratoxin A (OA) was added to the feed of broiler chicks at 0.5 ppm and 2.0 ppm, and humoral and cell-mediated immunity (CMI) were studied. CMI was assessed by skin sensitivity testing, graft versus host (GVH) reaction and T lymphocyte count. Humoral immunity was examined by measuring the haemagglutinin (HA) response to sheep RBC (SRBC).

Haemato- biochemical and immuno-pathophysiological changes following feeding of broiler chicks with 20 ppm fenvalerate (synthetic pyrethroid, SP), 2 ppm monocrotophos (organophosphate, OP) and 2 ppm endosulfan (chlorinated hydrocarbon, CH) were studied. Four groups of broiler birds (30 each) were fed poultry mash without (control) or mixed with pesticides(More)
Cypermethrin toxicity was produced in mice by intra-peritoneal injection of the pesticide at 50 mg/kg body weight per day for 26 days, and in goats by drenching with cypermethrin at 41.6 mg/kg body weight per day for 30 days. The status of cell-mediated immunity (CMI) was assessed by the 2,4-dinitrofluorobenzene (DNFB) skin sensitivity test. The results(More)
The effect of purified aflatoxin B1 on cell-mediated immunity (CMI) in broiler chicks was assessed using doses of 0.3 and 1 mg/kg feed from hatching to 6 weeks of age. Total lymphocyte and T lymphocyte counts and the 2,4-dinitrofluorobenzene skin sensitivity test, graft-versus-host reaction and nitroblue tetrazolium salt reduction tests were used to(More)
This experiment evaluated effects following chronic toxicity with 20 ppm fenvalerate (synthetic pyrethroid), 2 ppm monocrotophos (organophosphate) and 2 ppm endosulfan (chlorinated hydrocarbon) on bone health of broiler chicks. A total of 120 chicks were divided equally into 4 groups and were fed poultry mash without (control) or mixed with different(More)
Fenvalerate, a widely used pesticide, was administered orally to goats at a dose rate of 15 mg/kg body weight, daily for 270 days. After 90 days of dosing, the animals, together with appropriate controls, were vaccinated with Brucella abortus strain 19. The fenvalerate reduced both the humoral and cell-mediated immune responses, as assessed by the standard(More)
On microscopic examination after experimental infection with Paramphistomum cervi, tissue reactions in the duodenum were more pronounced during early stages of the infection (20th day post-infection (DPI)). Immature parasites were seen migrating to the muscularis layer, and focal infiltration of macrophages and lymphocytes was observed in the lamina propria(More)
