1. IntroductionThere is a tremendous interest in the understanding of immune response against pathogens and toxins on the gastrointestinal tract (GIT) of the birds due to in this specialized system, as it harbors 70 to 80 percent of the avian immune cells and molecules [1]. Additionally, there is an overwhelming interest in finding new alternatives to antibiotic growth promoters (AGP) because of r ...

INTRODUCTIONMet is the first-limiting amino acid in corn-soybean based diet of poultry and plays an important role for growth, and egg production, but excess Met supplementation can be toxic for poultry. Besides carcass yield and quality, feather growth is especially important economic trait for meat duck production. Optimum feathering is considered crucial in modern broiler production due to dema ...

Soybean meal (SBM) is an ingredient with a high digestibility of protein, Lys, and Met. An optimal heating process of SBM is required to eliminate antinutritional components that negatively interfere with digestion, absorption, and metabolism of nutrients. The effect of 3 commercial SBM batches were subjected to different heat treatments to evaluate its effect on growth performance and intestinal ...

INTRODUCTIONStudies from humans and rats have showed the intestinal epithelium represents the largest area of exposure of the body to external pathogens and toxins (Abreu, 2010; Slack et al., 2012). The secretory immune system, including secretory IgA (sIgA) and the mucus, serves as the first line of defense to limit epithelial contact with pathogenic microorganisms and other potentially dangerous ...

INTRODUCTIONAs a fungal secondary metabolite of the Aspergillus species, aflatoxin B1 (AFB1) is known to be the most toxigenic mycotoxin (Yunus et al., 2011). Feed contamination with AFB1 has been a major feed safety concern due to its negative effects on growth performance, production, hepatic functions, and immune system in many livestock species (Ledoux et al., 1999; Yarru et al., 2009; Andrett ...

INTRODUCTION Coccidiosis is an enteric disease caused by protozoa of the genus Eimeria that affects several animal species, including poultry. Eimeria multiplication in the intestinal epithelium leads to enterocyte destruction and severe tissue damage, which negatively affects poultry health and welfare status (1). Although difficult to predict, researchers have estimated that th ...
