Various dietary modifications and their effects on birds with aflatoxicosis

, : Various dietary modifications and their effects on birds with aflatoxicosis. Poultry Adviser 27(9): 45-50

The detoxification or modification of aflatoxin-contaminated feeds by the addition of antibiotics, vitamins, antioxidants or chemicals, and their impact on the neutralization of aflatoxicosis in poultry are discussed.

Increasing the protein content of a diet to 30% gave essentially complete protection to broilers against 5 ppm of dietary aflatoxin. Increasing the lipid content of a diet from 2% to 16% reduced the mortality to control levels; however, the growth...

Weanling rats fed aflatoxins at 8 mg/kg feed had markedly reduced rates of body wt. gain during days 4-7. After the 7th day the rate of growth became constant. Rats fed aflatoxins in a ration with high levels of carbohydrate and fat, but poor-qual...

Llewellyn, G.C.; Thomen, L.E.; Katzen, J.S., 1981: Effects of dietary copper on developing aflatoxicosis in Syrian hamsters. The possible suppression of toxic and carcinogenic activities of aflatoxin by the cupric ion were investigated. Weanling, male Syrian hamsters received diets of either ground meal, ground meal plus 22.9 ppm mixed aflatoxins (9.2 ppm AFB1, 0.4 ppm...

Oguz, H.; Parlat, S.S., 2004: Effects of dietary mannanoligosaccharide on performance of Japanese quail affected by aflatoxicosis. The potential of the yeast component, mannan oligosaccharide (MOS) to ameliorate the effects of aflatoxicosis was examined in growing Japanese quails. The product was incorporated in the diet at 1 g/kg and was evaluated for its ability to reduce t...

Ortatatli, M.; Oğuz, H., 2001: Ameliorative effects of dietary clinoptilolite on pathological changes in broiler chickens during aflatoxicosis. The amelioration of aflatoxicosis in broiler chickens was examined by feeding two concentrations of natural zeolite (clinoptilolite). Clinoptilolite (CLI), incorporated into the diet at 1.5 and 2.5 per cent, was evaluated for the ability to reduce...

Inclusion of Spirulina platensis in broiler ration to counter aflatoxin in chicken was studied. Four experimental diets containing no supplement (control), Spirulina (0.05%), aflatoxin (300 ppb B1) and aflatoxin (300 ppb B1) plus Spirulina (0.05%)...

A 14-d study was conducted to determine the impact of dietary crude protein concentration on performance, serum biochemistry, and nutrient digestive functions in Pekin ducklings during aflatoxicosis. A total of 144 male Pekin ducklings were random...

Yildirim, I.; Parlat, S.S., 2003: Effects of dietary addition of live yeast on hatching traits, testis and ovary weights of Japanese quail in aflatoxicosis. Although the effects of aflatoxin on animal performance have been well established in previous studies, there is no report on the relationship among aflatoxin, Sacchoromyces cerevisiae and hatching traits in poultry species. The current study used...

Tung, H.T.; Donaldson, W.E.; Hamilton, P A.B., 1971: Modifications in lipid metabolism during aflatoxicosis. The incorporation of injected radiolabelled acetate into the long-chain fatty acids of liver was measured in birds receiving aflatoxin. This fatty acid biosynthesis was decreased in a dose-related fashion. Fatty acid synthesis was similarly inhibi...

Podlesak, D.W.; Mcwilliams, S.R., 2007: Metabolic routing of dietary nutrients in birds: effects of dietary lipid concentration on 13C of depot fat and its ecological implications. During migration, many songbirds eat primarily fruit while depositing fat. Given that some fruits contain mostly carbohydrate and others contain mostly lipid, the ability of birds to fatten may depend on the macronutrient composition of the fruit....
