Effects of cortisol implants on the PKX myxosporean causing proliferative kidney disease in rainbow trout, Salmo gairdneri



Effects of cortisol implants on the PKX myxosporean causing proliferative kidney disease in rainbow trout, Salmo gairdneri



Journal of Parasitology 73(3): 455-461



PKX-infected S. gairdneri were immunosuppressed with cortisol implants to determine if a reduction in renal interstitial inflammation would enhance the development of the parasite. Immunosuppression of these fish was indicated by high plasma cortisol levels, chronic mortality due to opportunistic pathogens, and depressed leucocrits when compared to infected fish not receiving cortisol implants.
