In this investigation found a bacterial pathogen, Pseudomonas aeruginosa strain, two different of antigens such as whole cell antigen and nucleotide antigens were prepared and injected into the experimental fish(Catla catla) groups and control for the study of cell mediated immune response and cell mediated immune response. Cell mediated response analysed by T cell counts as whole bacterial antigen in fish showed the increased the productions of T cells in primary (56±1) and secondary immune response  (58±2)compare with nucleotide antigen exposes is low. DTH response was showed inflammation at 3rd week of secondary response but postive reaction was showed in primary and secondary response. Lympocyte migration was showed in both types of strains fishes exposed inhibition of pathogens. The enhancement of this type of immune responses confirms the potential of chosen antigen to be used as a vaccine.

Keywords: Catla catla,Bacterial antigen.
