Abstract:

Nanomaterials can be composed of many different base materials (carbon, silicon, and metals such as gold, cadmium, aluminium and selenium). Generally the nano-particles are part of volcanic eruptions, forest fires, fumes generated during welding, metal smelting, automobile exhaust and other industrial processes. The present study was conducted to understand the effects of nano alumina as cell mediated immune response on forty White leghorn chickens of two week age. The chickens were randomly divided into two groups control (Group I) and treated (Group II). The control group was fed with normal standard recommended feed while treated group exposed to nano alumina through oral route in feed for three months. RO water was provided to both the groups.The cell mediated immune response was seen at the end of experiment, taking random samples from ten birds from each group. The results in this study revealed that delta optical density of LST (Lymphocyte Stimulation Test) values showed no significant change while the mean values of treated group was 18.29 % increased as compared to control group at 90th days post treatment.
