The present investigation reports the evaluation of the immunosuppressive potential of low fat buffalo milk supplemented with omega-3 fatty acids in mice. The phagocytic activity of omega-3 milk group was 32% less than that of control group after 4 weeks and 42% less after 8 weeks of
dietary regime. The lymphocyte proliferation index was 26% and 61% less than that of control after 4 and 8 weeks, respectively, when lipopolysaccharide was used as mitogen and 17.8% (4 weeks) and 19% (8 weeks) when concanavalin A was used as mitogen. The IgG level in serum reduced after dietary
supplementation. IgG in intestine and IgA in intestine did not show any particular trend.
