Abstract

Trino IB mixture at a very minimal concentration (0.2 ml) was found not only to protect rats against lethal dose of pathogenic isolates of Escherichia coli andStaphylococcus aureus but  it is also capable of ameliorating the deleterious effect of very high concentration of sodium arsenite (6 mg/kg body weight) in rat and bird. 

 

Key words: Immunobooster, Escherichia coliStaphylococcus aureus, sodium arsenite.
