Author(s): Ashokkumar R and M. Ramaswamy

ABSTRACT

The present study is aimed to investigate the disease controlling efficacy of  the  methanolic leaf extract of Indian medicinal plant, Phyllanthus maderaspatensis, amended with manually prepared feed fed to fingerlings of edible freshwater fish, Channa striatus (Bloch) which was exposed to two different concentrations (10-5 & 10-3) of two species of  microorganisms, Pseudomonas fluorescens (bacteria) and Penicillium chrysogenum (fungus) in different rearing tanks. Haemotological parameters of control (prefed with normal feed) and experimental (prefed with plant extract/chemical antibiotics) fingerlings revealed that  the methanolic extract of Phyllanthus maderaspatensis has got higher controlling efficacy of bacterial infection than fungal infection by way of increasing the lymphocyte count in the blood to stimulate humoral immune response by way of producing immunoglobulins to fight against harmful microorganisms.
