Yes, mycotoxins interfere with normal matabolism of Vitamin D. However, mycotoxins interaction with vitamin D is important. It is the level of mycotoxin in feed which is important that interacts with the vitamin D. What level of mycotoxin in feed disrupts the vitamin D metabolism, which has not been researched extensively so far. Therefore, the mycotoxin- vitamin D interaction is inconclusive.

To evaluate the impact of aflatoxin B1 (AFB1), ochratoxin A (OTA) and their interactions on blood biochemicals and organ histopathology, dayold broiler chicks (n=288) were divided into 9 treatment groups (T1: control; T2: T1+150 ppb AFB1; T3: T1+300 ppb AFB1; T4: T1+150 ppb OTA; T5: T1+250 ppb OTA; T6: T1+150 ppb AFB1+150 ppb OTA; T7: T1+150 ppb AFB1+250 ppb OTA; T8: T1+300 ppb AFB1+150 ...

Ochratoxin A (OTA) is a mycotoxin that is receiving increasing attention worldwide because of the hazard it poses to animal and human health. This mycotoxin was isolated as metabolite of the fungus Aspergillus ochraceus from which the toxin acquired its name. However, ochratoxin production is not unique to Aspergillus ochraceus as additional several Aspergillus species and several Penicillium spec ...

In order to establish the tolerance level of ochratoxin A (OTA) in broiler chickens, day-old broiler chicks (n=160) were divided into 4 treatment groups (T1- control; T2-T1+50 ppb OTA; T3-T1+100 ppb OTA; and T4-T1+150 ppb OTA). Each diet was fed to 4 replicated groups of 10 birds each from day-old to 42 days of age. During overall growth phase (0- 6 weeks), the average body weight gain ( ...

To evaluate the efficacy of Mycodetox B2 in ameliorating aflatoxicosis, day-old broiler chicks (n=200) were divided into 5 treatment groups (T1-control, basal diet; T2-T1+200ppb aflatoxin B1 (AFB1); T3- T1+300ppb AFB1; T4-T2+Mycodetox B2; T5-T3+Mycodetox B2). Each diet was fed to 5 replicated groups of 8 birds each from 1 to 42 days of age. During overall growth period (0-6 wk), the body ...
