Khatirnamani M, Gholipourkanani H, Jafaryan H, Ebrahimi P., Effect of Aloe vera on immunological and hematology markers in Huso huso fish, Onl J Vet Res., 27 (6): 378-385, 2023. The effect of single Aleo vera extract 100 and 200mg/kg intraperitoneal injection in Huso huso fish on immunological and hematological markers over 21 days are described. Compared with controls, Aloe vera enhanced (P < 0.05) serum lysozyme ~31-35%, complement ~30-66%, hemoglobin ~52-90%, hematocrit ~27-37%, white cells ~26-32%, corpuscles ~31-35%, cell hemoglobin ~12-80%. However neutrophils declined (P < 0.05) ~52-55% and monocytes ~46% but lymphocytes increased ~29%. Results suggest intraperitoneal Aloe vera may boost immune and hematological responses in Huso Huso fish.
