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 ...

To evaluate the impact of aflatoxin B1 (AFB1), ochratoxin A (OTA) and their interactions on carcass traits and organ weights, day-old 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 A ...

To study the ameliorative impact of mannan oligosaccharide (MOS) and sodium butyrate (NaB) during simultaneous aflatoxicosis and ochratoxicosis on carcass traits and organ weights, day-old broiler chicks (n=320) were divided into 10 treatment groups (T0: control; T1: T0+300 ppb aflatoxin B1 (AFB1)+250 ppb ochratoxin A (OTA); T2: T1+0.15% MOS; T3: T1+0.3% MOS; T4: T1+500 mg/kg NaB; T5: T1 ...

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 ...

The associated efficacy of Saccharomyces cerevisiae and vitamin E, in ameliorating ochratoxicosis was investigated in broiler chickens. Day-old broiler chicks (320) were divided into 8 treatment groups, viz. T1 (control; basal diet); T2 (T1 + 150 ppb OTA); T3 (T2 + 0.05% SC + 100 mg vitamin E-VE); T4 (T2 + 0.075% SC + 100 mg VE); T5 (T2 + 0.1% SC + 100 mg VE); T6 (T2 + 0.05% SC + 200 mg ...

To establish the efficacy of Mycodetox B2 in alleviating aflatoxicosis, day-old broiler chicks (n=200) were divided into 5 treatment groups (T1-control; T2-T1+200ppb aflatoxin B1 (AFB1); T3-T1+300ppb AFB1; T4-T2+Mycodetox B2 and T5-T3+Mycodetox B2). Each diet was fed to 5 replicates of 8 birds each for 42 days of age. Overall liveability percentage (LP) in T3 was lower (P<0.05) than ...
