As a part of the multidisciplinary program Biological Effects of Environmental Pollution in Marine Coastal Ecosystems of the European Commission, this study aimed to validate immunological alterations as biomarkers of exposure to chemical contamination in polluted areas of Western Mediterranea. The status of the immune system has been assessed in mussels (Mytilus galloprovincialis) by measuring several immunopathological and immunocompetence parameters. Alterations of total hemocyte counts… CONTINUE READING
