Enhancement of humoral and cellular immunity by vitamin E after embryonic exposure.
In the present study, the amnion of turkey and chicken embryos were injected 3 d prior to hatch with different levels of vitamin E (VE). In Experiments 1 and 2, turkey embryos received 10, 20, and 30Expand

Dietary exposure of broiler breeders to aflatoxin results in immune dysfunction in progeny chicks.
Broiler breeder hens were fed diets amended with 0 and 10 mg/kg (Trial 1) or 0, 0.2, 1, or 5 mg/kg (Trial 2) of aflatoxin (AF). Fertile eggs collected during 14 d of AF feeding were examined for AFExpand

The Influence of β‐Glucan on Immune Responses in Broiler Chicks
Abstract Beta‐1,3/1,6‐glucan (β‐glucan) was tested as a possible immunomodulator. Chicken macrophages from a macrophage cell line MQ‐NCSU and from abdominal exudate of broiler chickens were exposedExpand
