Effects of beta-glucan administration on survival and immune modulations were studied in Cyprinus carpio against the bacterial pathogen, Aeromonas hydrophila. Beta-glucan was extracted from Saccharomyces cervisiae and purified. A virulent strain of the pathogen A. hydrophila was collected from infected fish. Different concentrations of beta-glucan were administered to test animals on day 1, 3 and 5 through different routes (intraperitoneal injection (ip), bathing and oral administration… CONTINUE READING
