Indigenous bacteria and bacterial metabolic products in the gastrointestinal tract of broiler chickens
Abstract The gastrointestinal tract is a dynamic ecosystem containing a complex microbial community. In this paper, the indigenous intestinal bacteria and the microbial fermentation profileExpand

Fermentable fiber ameliorates fermentable protein-induced changes in microbial ecology, but not the mucosal response, in the colon of piglets.
Dietary inclusion of fermentable carbohydrates (fCHO) is reported to reduce large intestinal formation of putatively toxic metabolites derived from fermentable proteins (fCP). However, the influenceExpand

Intestinal effects of mannanoligosaccharides, transgalactooligosaccharides, lactose and lactulose in dogs.
Carbohydrates that are indigestible by mammalian enzymes can influence the composition and metabolic activity of the intestinal microflora and are therefore of interest for the formulation of petExpand

The Impact of the Fusarium Mycotoxin Deoxynivalenol on the Health and Performance of Broiler Chickens
The aim of the present experiment was to investigate the effects of feeding grains naturally contaminated with Fusarium mycotoxins on morphometric indices of jejunum and to follow the passage ofExpand

The impact of high dietary zinc oxide on the development of the intestinal microbiota in weaned piglets.
Weaned piglets were fed diets containing 57 (low) or 2425 (high) mg kg(-1) analytical grade ZnO for a period of 5 weeks. Intestinal contents were sampled in weekly intervals and analyzed forExpand

Effects of differentially fermentable carbohydrates on the microbial fermentation profile of the gastrointestinal tract of broilers.
The objective of the present study was to evaluate the effects of dietary inulin and sucrose on the fermentation profile of the gastrointestinal microflora in chicken. Day-old broilers (n = 80) wereExpand

Effects of dietary combinations of organic acids and medium chain fatty acids on the gastrointestinal microbial ecology and bacterial metabolites in the digestive tract of weaning piglets.
Organic short and medium chain fatty acids are used in diets for piglets because they have an impact on the digestive processes and the intestinal microbiota. In this study, 48 pens (2 piglets/pen)Expand

The Impact of the Fusarium Toxin Deoxynivalenol (DON) on Poultry
Deoxynivalenol (DON), a trichothecene, is prevalent worldwide in crops used for food and feed production. The presence of mycotoxins in poultry feeds is a significant factor for financial losses toExpand

Increased dietary zinc oxide changes the bacterial core and enterobacterial composition in the ileum of piglets.
This study was conducted to investigate the effects of increased dietary ZnO on the bacterial core and enterobacterial composition in the small intestine of piglets that were fed diets containing aExpand
