Previously an experimental infection model was developed in which broiler chickens were inoculated with sporulated Eimeria acervulina oocysts at an age of 18 d. The infection resulted in adverse performance results and reduced nutrient digestion. In two new experiments with the infection model effects of diet adjustments on fat digestion were investigated.(More)
In three experiments broiler chickens were inoculated with sporulated Eimeria acervulina oocysts at 18 d of age. Feed intake, body-weight gain, brush-border enzyme activities, fat digestion, protein digestion and protein retention were measured. Body-weight gain was reduced during the acute phase of the infection and increased during the recovery phase of(More)
The inter-observer variation in simple bedside assessments of body composition has been evaluated in 12 healthy adult subjects (6 male and 6 female) by 6 observers. Systematic bias between observers was found to be evident in each of the basic measurements (except height) and in each of the estimates of body composition (except those derived from weight and(More)
BACKGROUND Dietary saffron and photobiomodulation (low-level infrared radiation, PBM) are emerging as therapeutically promising protectants for neurodegenerative conditions, such as the retinal dystrophies. In animal models, saffron and PBM, given in limited daily doses, protect retina and brain from toxin- or light-induced stress. This study addresses the(More)
