Gut microbial status induced by antibiotic growth promoter alters the prebiotic effects of dietary DVAQUA® on Aeromonas hydrophila-infected tilapia: production, intestinal bacterial community and non-specific immunity.


The purpose of the present study was to investigate whether dietary antibiotic-induced changes in the fish intestinal microbiota altered host physiological responses to the infection with Aeromonas hydrophila in hybrid tilapia (Oreochromis niloticus ♀ × O. aureus ♂). After an 8-week induction period with an antibiotic-supplemented or antibiotic-non… (More)
