PATHOMORPHOLOGICAL STUDIES OF SMALL INTESTINE IN EXPERIMENTAL BROILERS DURING AFLATOXICOSISD. SRINIVASA RAO AND V.V. VARDHANI
In the present study, two week (220-230gm.wt.) old broilers were used to investigate the influence of aflatoxin B1 (AFB1) on pathomorphology of small intestine. Two experimental groups were treated with AFB1 - A (0.25ng/bird) and B (0.5ng/bird). Another control group (C) was used in the present study. Controls and experimental animals were sacrificed on day 1, 3, 8 and 11 of experimental period and pieces of duodenum, jejunum and ileum were collected, processed, sectioned (5 to 6μ) and stained by H & E method for histopathological study. Marked pathological changes were observed in duodenum, jejunum and ileum of treated animals from day 1 to 11 of experimental period.
