Abstract This study sought to analyze structures of lymphatic tissues in two commercial fish species, e.g. Sole (Euryglossa orientalis) and Yellowfin Seabream (Acanthopagus latus), collected from five stations with varying levels of pollution in the Musa Creek near the Persian Gulf, e.g. Petro-chemical, Gaafari, Majidieh, Ghazaleh and Zangi Stations. Samples from Genaveh Station located outside Musa Creek were collected as controls. To correlate findings of changes in the studied tissues with… Expand
Liver biomarkers response of the neotropical fish Aequidens metae to environmental stressors associated with the oil industry
Water quality was estimated through the measurement of several variables and results obtained evidenced that the highest induction in EROD activity and the strongest histological alterations in liver of the monitored fish appeared during the dry seasons at the discharge site and downstream to this point.

Immunohistological Biomarkers of Toxicity by a Pharmaceutical Antidepressant in the Freshwater Cichlid Fish Cichlasoma dimerus (Teleostei, Cichliformes)
The deposition rate of MMCs varies according to the hemolymphopoietic organ and would be the result of a differential response to FLX on homeostatic functions (elimination of cellular debris, iron processing and immune response). Expand
Toxic, physiological, histomorphological, growth performance and antiparasitic effects of copper sulphate in fish aquaculture
Copper sulphate may be a chemotherapeutic for controlling and treating ectoparasites in farmed fish because of its effectiveness and low cost. Expand


Using Histopathological Changes as a Biomarker to Trace Contamination Loading of Musa Creeks (Persian Gulf)
The results suggest that there is close relation between amounts of pathological alterations and environmental contamination. Expand
Cytology of lymphomyeloid head kidney of Antarctic fishes Trematomus bernacchii (Nototheniidae) and Chionodraco hamatus (Channicthyidae).
In fishes, the head kidney is a key organ for immunity and here the cytology of this organ is studied in two common Antarctic species: Trematomus bernacchii and Chionodraco hamatus, revealing heterogeneity of epithelial cells, with reticular cells, subcapsular- and perivascular-limiting cells.

Histo-cytological responses of Dicentrarchus labrax (L.) following mercury exposure.
The histoarchitecture of the gills of exposed fish was highly modified due to severe oedema, telangiectasia and secondary lamellar fusion, and the number of chloride cells, RCs and macrophage aggregates were found to have increased significantly in the gill, the intestine and the head kidney.

Assessment of Mercury Intake through Consumption of Yellowfin Seabream (Acanthopagrus latus) from Musa Estuary
Fish constitute a major part of people diet in southern Iranian cities due to the neighborhood of those cities to the Persian Gulf. Previous studies have demonstrated that Musa Estuary is polluted byExpand
Histopathology of kidney of Channa punctatus exposed to chronic nonlethal level of Elsan, mercury, and ammonia.
It is demonstrated that a chronic nonlethal exposure to Elsan, mercuric chloride affect both endocrine and excretory parts of the kidney while ammonia specifically damages the excretary part of the kidneys of C. punctatus. Expand
Effects of experimental terbuthylazine exposure on the cells of Dicentrarchus labrax (L.).
High cytoplasmic vacuolization, myelin-like figures, cristolysis and varying degrees of rodlet degeneration were observed in RCs of gills, the intestine and kidney of exposed sea bass and the severity of damage was dose-dependent. Expand
Benzo[a]pyrene-induced hypocellularity of the pronephros in tilapia (Oreochromis niloticus) is accompanied by alterations in stromal and parenchymal cells and by enhanced immune cell apoptosis.
Histopathologic evaluation of the primary hematopoietic compartment of fish, thepronephros, demonstrated increased vacuolation of both stromal and parenchymal cells, reduction of lymphoid elements, and immune cell apoptosis, and total pronephros cell counts were diminished in a dose-dependent manner by the chemical exposure.

The Japanese medaka (Oryzias latipes) model: applicability for investigating the immunosuppressive effects of the aquatic pollutant benzo[a]pyrene (BaP).
The medaka has demonstrated its utility for also determining the immunosuppressive effects of an important aquatic contaminant, and the AhR pathway appears important in mediating BaP-induced immunotoxicity in fish, as in mammals. Expand
Do macrophage centres in freshwater fishes reflect the differences in water quality
It is concluded that macrophage centres have limited usefulness as indicators of pollution in fish species in Finland. Expand
Heavy Metals Concentration in Mullet Fish, Liza abu from Petrochemical Waste Receiving Creeks, Musa Estuary (Persian Gulf)
Fish in estuaries, especially those live near petrochemical area, may be exposed to various kinds of contaminants such as heavy metals. This study was to investigate the variations of heavy metals inExpand
