Three groups of 1-day-old broiler chicks (n=40/group) were fed control feed, aflatoxin at 2 p.p.m., or aflatoxin 2 p.p.m. + Livol 0.2% powder until 8 weeks of age. The protective effect of Livol in aflatoxin-treated birds was evaluated based on the degree of histopathological changes in various organs in the different groups. The changes in liver, kidney, heart, bursa, brain and lungs of aflatoxin-fed chicks were very severe in comparison to chicks fed with aflatoxin + Livol.
