Title

Continuous administration of dopamine alters cellular immunity in chickens

Abstract

Dopamine administered continuously through osmotic pumps altered the PHA wattle response and in vitro leukocyte capillary tube migration in UNH 105 chickens. The PHA wattle response was suppressed significantly by 48 hr exposure to dopamine at a dose of 1 μg/hr. Administration of 10 μg/hr dopamine for 48 hr enhanced significantly in vitro leukocyte migration.
