ROLE OF HERBAL TOXIN BINDERS IN COUNTERACTING THE EFFECTS OF AFLATOXIN ON THE SERUM GLUTAMATE OXALATE TRANSFERASE LEVELS OF BREEDING JAPANESE QUAILS (COTURNIX COTURNIX JAPONICA)R. KUNGUMAPRIYA AND K. REVATHI
Mycotoxins play a global role in human and animal health. Aflatoxins cause malperformance, metabolic disorders and pathologic alterations in different species of poultry. Various species of poultry differ in susceptibility to acute and sub-acute aflatoxicosis. This work was carried out to study the role of locally available herbal plant extracts such as Azadirachta indica, Cynodon dactylon and Curcuma longa in counteracting the effects of experimental aflatoxicosis in laying Japanese quail by feeding them with diets containing aflatoxin at 1.5 and 3ppm levels for a period of six weeks.
