Immunomodulatory response of orally administrated colostrum whey powder supplemented dahi in immunocompromised swiss albino mice
Anamika Das and Raman Seth
Immunomodulation is related to nonspecific activation of the function of macrophages, complement, natural killer cells, lymphocytes and is also associated with generation of activated cells. This study was undertaken to investigate the immunomodulatory reponse of orally administered colostrum whey powder supplemented dahi in immunocompromised swiss albino mice. The mice were immunocompromised by giving intravenous injections of cyclophosphamide drug @20mg/kg body weight. The mice fed with stock diet as well as the group fed with plain dahi showed significant decrease in phagocytic activity, lymphocyte proliferation index, serum IgG and IgA in comparison to the group fed with colostrum whey powder supplemented dahi. The results suggested that colostrum whey powder supplemented dahi had a potential immunostimulatory effect on immunocompromised mice.
