Historically, host immunocompetence has been monitored using a battery of immune parameters. Recently, many of these same assays have been employed as biomarkers for predicting chemical-induced immunotoxicity in wildlife species. In this laboratory, assays measuring immunopathology, immune cell function, and host resistance against bacteria have been used successfully to assess immunotoxicity in laboratory-reared Japanese medaka (Oryzias latipes) and in feral fish populations. As an example of… CONTINUE READING
