Beta-glucans reduce inflammation

“Everyone” knows that beta-glucans added to the fish’s feed stimulate the nonspecific immune system, but a new project we carried out shows that they can also reduce the expression of inflammatory genes. The results from vaccination trials to trigger abdominal inflammation will be presented at the European Fish Pathologist Conference in Porto September 9-14, 2019. Aquamedic continues to investigate whether beta-glucans can attenuate muscle inflammation due to PD, or inflammation of the hind gut due to high use of plant proteins.
