Effect of wood betony (Stachys lavandulifolia Vahl) extract on some serum biochemical changes and acute stress response in juvenile common carp (Cyprinus carpio)

  title={Effect of wood betony (Stachys lavandulifolia Vahl) extract on some serum biochemical changes and acute stress response in juvenile common carp (Cyprinus carpio)},
  author={Somayeh Bahrami},
The effects of four different levels of wood betony (WB) (Stachys lavandulifolia Vahl) extract (0, 2, 4 and 8% W/W in the diet) were investigated on some serum enzymatic activities and acute stress response of juvenile common carp (Cyprinus carpio). After 10 weeks post feeding, two groups of fish (0 and 8% WB) were subjected to handling and crowding stress and the stress responses including serum cortisol, glucose and some electrolytes (Na + , K + and Ca +2 ) levels were assayed. The results…

Effects of diet containing wood betony, Stachys lavandulifolia extract on growth, gut microbiota and intestinal structure of the African cichlid, Sciaenochromis fryeri

It is indicated that hydroethanolic extract of WB can be considered as a supplement in fish diet to improve growth and some physiological aspects of the cichlid.

Histopathological changes in various tissues of striped catfish, Pangasianodon hypophthalmus, fed on dietary nucleotides and exposed to water-borne silver nanoparticles or silver nitrate

Dietary NT could not improve the fish ability against water-borne AgNPs or AgNO3, and the highest damages were observed in the tissues of the fish fed on the control diet and exposed to 20 μg L ofAgNPs.

Evaluation of the Use of Some Medicinal Plants as Diet Additive on Carcass Quality, Microbial Count and Immune Responses in Japanese Quail

It was concluded that the dietary T. copticum, M. officinale and M. hortensis can be considered as a natural food additive in Quail and Quailproducts.



Effect of mangosteen (Garcinia mangostana L.) extracts as a feed additive on growth and hematological parameters of African catfish (Clarias gariepinus) fingerlings.

It is suggested that feeding fish with 0.5 % of mangosteen extracts for 35 days has no adverse effect on growth and enhanced the hematological parameters of African catfish fingerlings.

Effects of ethanolic extracts of Garcinia kola seeds on growth and haematology of catfish (Clarias gariepinus) broodstock.

The probiotic effects of G kola seeds as growth promoter, haematological parameters such as pack cell volume  (PCV),  haemoglobin  concentration (Hb) and red blood cells (RBC) for fish fed on diets D2 to D5 were not significantly different from that of the control (D1), however there was a significant (P < 0.05) proliferation of the white blood cells in this study.

Stress Response to Long Distance Transportation of Common Carp ( Cyprinus carpio L.)

Results showed that pre-transport fish manipulation was found to be an important stressor for fish and long-distance transportation itself was relatively considerate for the common carp tested.

Effect of dietary herbal supplements on some physiological conditions of Sea Bass Dicentrarchus labrax.

Investigation of the effects of dietary thyme Thymus vulgaris, rosemary Rosmarinus officinalis,and fenugreek Trigonella foenum graecum as feed additives on total liver fat levels and biometric indices of Sea Bass indicated that a dietary level of1.0% could improve some of the physiological parameters of Sea bass.

Histopathological, serum enzyme, cholesterol and urea changes in experimental acute toxicity of ammonia in common carp Cyprinus carpio and use of natural zeolite for prevention

Inhistopathologic study, the most important lesions that encountered in the gill were hyperemia, edema and aneurysm, and in the kidney, degenerative changes oftubules and glumeruli, expansion of Bowman's capsules, hype Remia, congestion andhemorrhage were the most prominent lesions.

Dietary medicinal plant extracts improve growth, immune activity and survival of tilapia Oreochromis mossambicus.

The blood plasma chemistry analysis revealed that protein, albumin, globulin, cholesterol, glucose and triglyceride levels of experimental fish were significantly higher than that of control fish and leucocrit value, phagocytic index and lysozyme activity were enhanced in fish fed the plant extract-supplemented diets.
