Abstract


Generation of immune globulins and immune complexes (CIC) is being essential for protection against infectious agents. The experiment aimed establish the age-related influence exerted by alcoholic Calendula officinalis and Echinacea angustifolia extractions on total immune globulins and CIC concentrations of antigen primed chickens. A comparison between Calendula officinalis and Echinacea angustifolia alcoholic extractions in three age categories (19, 47 days and 77 week old) of chickens led to the conclusion that the dynamics of total Ig and CIC concentrations were subjected to an age dependent, treatment induced variation. Calendula officinalis extraction proved to be more beneficial that the Echinacea anguctifolia one.
