Abstract:

An experiment was conducted to study the supplementation of Asparagus racemosus (SHATAVARI) on immune parameters in Giriraja birds. A total of one hundred and fifty day- old chicks were distributed into five treatment groups with three replicates in each group and ten birds in each replicate. Basal diet (T1) and the experimental diets were prepared by incorporating Shatavari at 0.25 per cent (T2), Shatavari at 0.50 per cent (T3), Shatavari at 1.0 per cent (T4) and Shatavari at 1.50 per cent (T5). The duration of the experiment was 8 weeks. Blood samples was collected from two birds from each replicate on 56thday. Serum was separated and antibody titer against Newcastle disease virus and Infectious bursal disease virus was estimated using HA followed by HI (Allan and Gough, 1974) and using indirect ELISA kit. The immune response against Newcastle disease at various levels of Asparagus racemosus supplemented groups had no significant (P > 0.05) difference in titre values among the treatment groups when compared to the control. The immune response against Infectious bursal disease at various levels of Asparagus racemosus supplemented groups showed significantly (P≤0.05) higher titre values among the treatment groups when compared to the control. It was concluded that supplementation of Asparagus racemosus at 1.0 per cent had higher titre value in immuneresponse against Infectious bursal disease on 56th day of the experiment. No significant (P > 0.05) difference showed in immuneresponse against Newcastle disease in Asparagus racemosus supplemented groups compared to control.
