Abstract

Blood parameters, disease resistance, and the immune response were sequentially evaluated in rainbow trout Oncorhynchus mykiss with proliferative kidney disease (PKD). The fish were maintained under laboratory conditions, and the study group went through a full cycle of the disease. Hematological and serological changes occurred primarily in those fish with severe kidney lesions. Fish infected with the parasite that causes PKD demonstrated a greater resistance to bacterial challenge, and their immune responses were heightened when compared with those of uninfected fish. These data suggest that PKD alone is not a predisposing factor for secondary infections if the fish does not incur severe renal lesions.
