Abstract


[Object]: Detect whether different concentrations of Chinese herbs compound polysaccharides (CPS), astragalus
polysaccharides (APS) and angeulica polysaccharides (ASP), epimedium herb polysaccharides (EPS) have effects on
the immunity function of healthy Roman chicken. [Method]: 260 one-day-old chickens were divided into thirteen
groups randomly, 20 birds each group. The physiological saline, Chinese herbs compound polysaccharides, APS, ASP
or EPS had been hypodermically injected for seven days continuously, and the blood was drawn on the 7th, 14th, 21st,
28th, 35th, 42nd, 49th and 56th day to evaluate the activity of the translation rate of blood lymphocyte and AI-HI antibody
titers in chickens. [Result]: The results of the experiment showed that the translation rate of blood lymphocyte and
AI-HI antibody titers increased markedly after the use of Chinese herbs compound polysaccharides, APS, ASP and EPS
to the chickens. Chinese herbs compound polysaccharides had more effective function improving the translation rate of
blood lymphocyte and AI-HI antibody titers than others. [Conclusion]: The Chinese herbs compound polysaccharides,
APS, ASP and EPS could promote the immunity function of the chickens. The Chinese herbs compound
polysaccharides were the strangest one among them.
