Abstract

The immunostimulatory effects of intraperitoneally injected Chevimmun, a fixed combination herbal product, was investigated in the rainbow trout. Administration of a 75% Chevimmun preparation resulted in significantly enhanced leucocyte migration (p<0.05), phagocytosis (p<0.001) and respiratory burst activity (p<0.001) in the peritoneal cavity. Antiprotease activity was also significantly elevated at 2 (p<0.001) and 7 days (p<0.05) post-injection.
