BACKGROUND Mortality from vibriosis in mollusk production is attributed to pathogenic bacteria, particularly Vibrio alginolyticus. Use of increasingly potent antibiotics has led to bacterial resistance and increased pathogenicity. Alternatives in sanitation, safety, and environmental sustainability are currently under analysis. To-date, homeopathy has been investigated in aquaculture of freshwater fish, but not in marine mollusks. The effect of the homeopathic complexes in the growth, survival… Expand
Effect of immunomodulatory medication over the general response of juvenile Catarina scallop (Argopecten ventricosus Sowerby II, 1842)
TLDR
It is demonstrated that some homeopathic treatments can activate an immunomodulatory response and improve the general condition index in A. ventricosus, used as model organisms due to their susceptibility to vibriosis. Expand
Transcriptome analysis of Catarina scallop (Argopecten ventricosus) juveniles treated with highly-diluted immunomodulatory compounds reveals activation of non-self-recognition system
TLDR
The RNA sequencing and transcriptome analysis allowed understanding some interactions between A. ventricosus juveniles and highly-diluted treatments, and showed a higher modulation of differentially expressed genes (DEG) in mantle tissue compared to gill tissue. Expand
Effect of homeopathic medicines on growth, survival and gastrointestinal microbiota of juvenile scallop Argopecten ventricosus
TLDR
This study showed for the first time, the composition of the G IT microbiota in Catarina scallop A. ventricosus and focused on the potential applicability of homeopathic medicines to improve overall performance and modulate the GIT microbiota of the species. Expand
Effect of Homeopathic Medicines on Intestinal Coccidia and Immune Response Cells in Spotted Rose Snapper (Lutjanus guttatus).
TLDR
Besides the accumulation of metabolic reserves in the liver, homeopathic treatment was associated with mucin increase in gills as well as raised production of lymphocytes and neutrophils in blood, which could act as macrophages against intestinal coccidia. Expand
Efecto de medicamentos homeopáticos sobre crecimiento, supervivencia y microbiota gastrointestinal, en juveniles del pectínido Argopecten ventricosus
TLDR
The best growth in shell-length corresponded to T1 and T2 and the highest survival to T3 and T5, stating T3 as the best HOMtreatment. Expand
Evaluation of Homeopathic Phosphoric Acid, Silica and Pathogenic Vibrio on Digestive Enzyme Activity of Longfin Yellowtail Fish (Seriola rivoliana).
TLDR
T2 may be applied, under hatchery conditions, during larval stages with an aim to enhance digestion and assimilation of inert food and may be associated with the stimulation of trypsin activity. Expand
Aquacultural Homoeopathy: A Focus on Marine Species
TLDR
This chapter shows a selection of different research with preliminary or advanced results, related to the use of homoeopathy and its impact on zootechnic, biochemical, genomic and transcriptomic parameters in marine molluscs, fish and crustaceans. Expand
Immune and Antioxidant Enzyme Response of Longfin Yellowtail (Seriola rivoliana) Juveniles to Ultra-diluted Substances Derived from Phosphorus, Silica and Pathogenic Vibrio.
TLDR
The results suggest that the overall effect of H1 was due to the presence of unknown antigens in low concentrations, while the response to H2-specifically during challenge-may have been due to a stimulating effect of nano-structures, prevailing from mother tincture after sequential dilution/succussion, in a pathway similar to that attributed to nano-vaccines.

Chapter 4 Aquacultural Homoeopathy : A Focus on Marine Species
Homoeopathy is an alternative medical system proposed by Samuel Hahnemann in the eighteenth century. It uses highly diluted and agitated substances that derived from plants, minerals or animals,Expand
Natrum muriaticum como atenuante de la salinidad (NaCl) en albahaca (Ocimum basilicum L.)
TLDR
The Similia Similibus Curentur homoeopathic principle is confirmed and it is estimated that agricultural homeopathy will increase the production of Ocimum basilicum L., increasing its tolerance to abiotic stress conditions, as well as being compatible with traditional, ecological and organic agriculture.

Effects of a homeopathic complex in Nile tilapia (Oreochromis niloticus L.) on performance, sexual proportion and histology.
TLDR
It was concluded that the addition of Homeopatila RS to the diet of Nile tilapias, during the phase of gonadal differentiation, did not induce any alteration in the sexual proportion. Expand
Morpho-functional response of Nile tilapia (Oreochromis niloticus) to a homeopathic complex.
TLDR
The addition of Homeopatila 100(®) at a concentration 40 mL per kg/meal to the diet of juvenile Nile tilapias resulted in improved hepatocytes and intracellular glycogen levels as well as the lowest mean rate of branchial histological changes with an increase in acidic mucin-producing cells compared to neutral mucin -producing cells, compared to control.
