Objective. Asses the effect of supplementation with Humic substances (HS) over some innate immunity parameters (serum bactericidal activity, phagocytosis, bacterial agglutination, respiratory burst and lisozyme activity) in phase after fasting of layer hens. Materials and methods. 120 posfasting phase Hy Line Brown layer hens were taken which were distributed into four groups: The first and the second were supplemented with 0.1 and 0.2% of HS, respectively. The third group was supplemented with 0.25 mg/kg on levamisole hydrochloride and fourth group have no supplementation; during sixty days period. Blood samples were collected on 8th, 30th and 60th of experiment day. Results. The phagocytic index and respiratory burst increased significantly at day 30th in HS supplemented groups. Alike, serum bactericidal activity and lisozyme activity improved on 8 th day, nevertheless, changes were no evident latter. The bacterial agglutination was high in supplemented groups evaluated at everyone times. Conclusions. Results showed that HS behave as immunostimulant in the early phase after fasting layer hens.


Objetivo. Evaluar el efecto de las sustancias húmicas (SH) sobre algunos parámetros de la inmunidad innata (actividad bactericida del suero, fagocitosis, aglutinación bacteriana, explosión respiratoria y actividad de la lisozima) en la fase posmuda de gallinas ponedoras. Materiales y métodos. Se utilizaron 120 gallinas ponedoras Hy Line Brown en la fase de posmuda, las cuales fueron divididas en cuatro grupos: Los dos primeros fueron suplementados con 0.1 y 0.2% de SH respectivamente, el tercer grupo fue suplementado con 0.25 mg/kg de Clorhidrato de levamisol y el cuarto grupo control sin suplemento; durante un período de 60 días. Las muestras sanguíneas se tomaron los días 8, 30 y 60 del experimento. Resultados. El Índice fagocítico y la explosión respiratoria se incrementaron significativamente a partir del día 30 de suplementación con SH. De la misma manera, la actividad bactericida del suero y la actividad de la lisozima aumentaron al día 8; no obstante no se evidenciaron cambios posteriores. La aglutinación bacteriana fue significativamente mayor en los grupos suplementados en todos los tiempos evaluados. Conclusiones. Los resultados demuestran que las SH se comportan como agentes inmunoestimulantes en la fase temprana de la posmuda en gallinas ponedoras Hy Line Brown.
