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 ...

The global trend away from the use of antimicrobials in many poultry production systems and rapid advances in the understanding of the chicken gut microbiome are changing the way the industry looks at the microbiome, as a functional organ that performs essential functions in the birds. The chicken gut microbiome contains more genetic potential than the chicken itself and produces thousands of meta ...
