Introduction Mycotoxins are naturally occurring secondary fungal metabolites produced both pre- and post-harvest in crops and other feed and food commodities. Fusarium, Aspergillus, and Penicillium are the most abundant mycotoxin producing mould genera contaminating feed and feed raw materials [1]. Fumonisins (FBs) are produced by Fusarium verticillioides, F. proliferatum, and other Fusarium spec ...

INTRODUCTION Since the 1970’s, broilers have substantially improved in growth rate, breast-meat yield and efficiency of feed conversion (Dawkins and Layton, 2012). Feed conversion ratio (FCR), calculated as the ratio of feed consumed to weight gained, is a widely used performance measure, representing how efficiently the feed is utilized and converted into body mass (Stanley et al., 2012). ...

INTRODUCTION For many years, broiler intestinal health was supported by the widespread use of antimicrobial growth promoters (AGPs). These AGPs are antibiotic substances that were added to the feed at subtherapeutic levels, leading to improved animal performance. In the European Union, the use of AGPs was banned in 2006 while the Center for Veterinary Medicine of the US Food and Drug. Administr ...

1. Introduction Clostridium perfringens is an anaerobic, spore-forming Gram-positive bacterium often found as a normal inhabitant of animal and human intestines [1–3]. However, by mechanisms and stimuli that are not fully understood, C. perfringens undergoes rapid proliferation, while producing several toxins, resulting in disease onset. Classification of C. perfringens strains is based on ...

Introduction Clostridium perfringens is a Gram-positive, spore-forming, anaerobic bacterium. It is a normal component of the intestinal microbiota of animals, including humans. It secretes several toxins and enzymes that cause different forms of tissue damage [1–3]. Consequently, it can cause a variety of diseases in various vertebrates [2]. The differences in virulence properties between C ...
