Perkinsus spp. infections are increasing in prevalence and intensity in softshell clams Mya arenaria , a commercially and ecologically important bivalve of the Chesapeake Bay. In the present study, the gills, labial palps, rectal tissue, and hemolymph from softshell clams were compared for their...
Despite impressive progress in fish farming during the last years, the impact of fish diseases is still an important problem in aquaculture. Current methods to control diseases consist, among others, of medication or eradication of diseased animals in combination with disinfection of facilities....
Immunostimulants are valuable for the control of fish diseases and may be useful in fish culture. The immunostimulatory effects of glucan, chitin, lactoferrin and levamisole for fish and shrimp have been reported. Nutritional factors such as Vitamins B and C, growth hormone and prolactin have...
An assay was developed to assess the ability of oyster, Crassostrea virginica , hemocytes to kill the human pathogenic bacterium, Vibrio parahaemolyticus (ATCC 17802). Bacterial killing was estimated colorimetrically by the enzymatic reduction of a tetrazolium dye,...

The current status on the antibodies that have been produced against teleost fish immunoglobulins, immunoglobulin-bearing cells (B-cells), thymocytes and T-cells is reviewed. An updated list of monoclonal antibodies is reported together with their antigen specificity, their use in the detection...
The genus Kudoa Meglitsch, 1947 (Myxozoa: Myxosporea) is comprised of myxosporean parasites with four valves, each of which contains a polar capsule. Species within this genus are typically histozoic parasites of marine teleosts. However, since the establishment of the genus, a few coelozoic...
In order to assess the potential for the development of economically viable and effective oral vaccines we have examined the humoral immune response resulting from the anal administration of a hapten-carrier conjugate in the posterior intestine of the rainbow trout, Oncorhynchus mykiss . Fish...
