Effects of supplementary water-administered vitamin D3 on egg shell thickness

, : Effects of supplementary water-administered vitamin D3 on egg shell thickness. Poultry Science 62(6): 1120-1122

A total of 77 672 White Leghorn pullets, 22 weeks old, were divided equally into a control and a test group, and all of the hens were fed on a commercial layer diet containing (for the test group) cholecalciferol 5478 international chick units (ICU)/kg. The vitamin was provided once weekly for 32 weeks added to drinking water at 4111 ICU/litre. All the hens were then moulted. The effect of cholecalciferol on egg shell thickness was studied about every month for 1 laying year.

Nonalcoholic steatohepatitis, which is considered the hepatic event in metabolic syndrome, was recently associated with the innate immune system. Although regular exercise reduces hepatic injury markers like serum alanine aminotransferase (ALT) le...

Intraparenchymal injection of the saporin conjugate [Sar9, Met (O2)11] substance Psaporin (SSP-SAP) into the ventrolateral medulla (VLM) destroys neurokinin-1 receptor-immunoreactivity (NK1R-ir) neurons selectively. This treatment attenuates the h...
