Experimental aflatoxicosis in the duck with special reference to pathology of the testis

Experimental aflatoxicosis in the duck with special reference to pathology of the testis

Kerala Journal of Veterinary Science 19(2): 122-128

The effect of aflatoxin on health and reproduction in ducks was assessed. Male ducks were administered aflatoxin B1 at the rate of 25 micro g/duck daily dissolved in propylene glycol for a period of 3 months. There was reduction in feed intake and progressive weakness. The weight of the testes was reduced and testicular degeneration and absence of spermatogenesis were consistently observed. Hepatosis and nephrosis were also seen.
