After feeding period of 15 days, fish were anesthetized with clove oil at a concentration of 100 mg.L-1 to be injected with carrageenin
in the swim bladder, according to Dotta et al.
Hyperplastic mucosal changes in the rabbit colon produced by degraded carrageenin
. Gastroenterology 59:760-768 (1970).
Using an eyedropper, drop one of the colors onto the carrageenin
bath to check flotation and spreadability.
RESULTS: There was significant reduction in the amount of rat paw volume in carrageenin
The sub-plantar injection of carrageenin
induced paw edema in group 1st rats (control) which was measured in terms of volume (ml) as 0.26 -+ 0.01, 0.84 -+ 0.09, 0.94 -+ 0.06 and 0.79 -+ 0.11 at 1, 2, 3 and 4 h respectively.
In order to determine the effects of the addition of probiotic bacteria on the inflammatory and hematological response in Nile tilapia, fish were fed diets containing Lactobacillus plantarum isolated from tilapia after carrageenin
or saline injection in the swim bladder.
0.1ml of 1% freshly prepared suspension of carrageenin
was administered into the sub-planter region of the right hind paws to lead to the formation of edema in situ due to localized inflammation.
induced inflamattion in Piaractus Mesopotamicus (Osteichthyes: Characidae) cultured in Brazil.
In Brazil, Matushima and Mariano (1996) injected carrageenin
in the swim bladder of tilapia (Oreochromis niloticus Linnaeus, 1758) and demonstrated an inflammatory reaction composed of vascular congestion, thrombocytes, rare granulocytes and oedema.
(1% in 0.9% saline) and tramadol were obtained from Yarrow Chem Products Ltd.
induced hind paw inflammation is a neutrophil-mediated acute inflammatory response that produce hind paw swelling, erythema and localized hyperthermia (15).
