    Glucans and disease resistance 

    Southeast Asian Fisheries Development Center, Aquaculture Department - Aqua Farm News, 1996 - Aquaculture Department, Southeast Asian Fisheries Development Center
    The paper presents the usefulness of beta-glucans as immunostimulants for strengthening the non-specific defense system of a wide range of animals. In Taiwan, researchers tested the effects of beta-glucans on the vibriosis resistance of tiger shrimp Penaeus monodon which yield promising results. They suggest that supplementation of beta-glucan at 0.5 mg per ml is sufficient in strengthening the non-specific defense mechanism of postlarval shrimp.
