Efficacy of a hydrated sodium calcium aluminosilicate to reduce the toxicity of aflatoxin and T-2 toxin.
It is indicated that HSCAS can diminish many of the adverse effects of dietary AF in the chicken, but it has no effect on T-2 toxicity. Expand
Effect of carbohydrates on Salmonella typhimurium colonization in broiler chickens.
Although mannose was the most effective sugar at blocking colonization, lactose may be more practical because it is effective and costs much less than mannosed. Expand
Progression of aflatoxicosis in broiler chickens.
Liver atrophy was indicated in the early stages of aflatoxicosis by a decrease in the relative weight of this organ and hepatomegaly became apparent due to lipid accumulation in the liver as a flatoxicosis progressed. Expand
Prevention of Salmonella typhimurium colonization of broilers with D-mannose.
Certain carbohydrates may provide a means to reduce S. typhimurium contamination in broilers by blocking D-mannose adherence to chicken intestine in vitro and reducing the mean log10 counts of control and mannose groups were significantly reduced. Expand
Effect of dietary lactose on cecal pH, bacteriostatic volatile fatty acids, and Salmonella typhimurium colonization of broiler chicks.
Results showed that providing dietary lactose to broiler chicks and inoculation with normal cecal flora decreased cECal pH, increased the concentrations of bacteriostatic volatile fatty acids, and inhibited Salmonella colonization. Expand
Inhibition by mannose of in vitro colonization of chicken small intestine by Salmonella typhimurium.
The in vitro adherence of [3H]thymidine-labeled Salmonella typhimurium isolates to the small intestine of one-day-old chickens was investigated and suggested that theSmall intestine of the chicken has receptors for bacteria with Type 1 fimbriae. Expand

The sensitivity of the immune system to mycotoxin-induced immunosuppression arises from the vulnerability of the continually proliferating and differentiating cells that participate in immunemediated activities and regulate the complex communication network between cellular and humoral components.

Evaluation of cell-mediated, cutaneous basophil hypersensitivity in young chickens by an interdigital skin test.
The results indicated that the interdigital skin test is a rapid and simple means of assessing normal and suppressed immune responses in chickens at 3 to 14 days of age. Expand
Presence of Salmonella in the crop and ceca of broiler chickens before and after preslaughter feed withdrawal.
The results indicate that the incidence of Salmonella crop contamination may increase as much as fivefold during preslaughter feed withdrawal and represent a critical preharvest control point in reducing Salmoneella entry into the processing plant. Expand
Evaluation of the chicken crop as a source of Salmonella contamination for broiler carcasses.
The results of these studies suggest that the crop may serve as a source of carcass contamination with Salmonella within some processing plants. Expand
