Medicinal herbs and plants have remained the primary health care
agents from the time immemorial before the advent of modern
medicine. However, the isolation and identification of the active
compound(s) involved did not gain much momentum till the 19th
century. It is reported that more than 64 per cent of the world's
human population uses botanical/ayurvedic drugs to combat health
problems; and almost 50 per cent of the synthetic medicines have
been derived from, or patterned after chemicals of plant origin.
Polysaccharides have diverse biological activities in this regard
and are frequently used in herbal medicines as a curative agent and
dietary supplement. Keeping in view, the present study reports the
effects of wheat bran polysaccharides, Arabinoxylans (AXs), on
chicken's immune profiles and its protective efficacy against
coccidiosis and results demonstrated the boosting effects of AXs on
the immune responses in chickens and protective efficacy against
avian coccidiosis. It was concluded that AXs may be a potential and
valuable immunostimulant in chickens and a low cost alternative to
allopathic drugs being used for the control of avian coccidiosis.
