Normal Hematologic and Serum Biochemical Reference Intervals for Juvenile Wild Turkeys
TLDR
Blood samples taken from 48 4-mo-old wild turkeys were used to establish reference intervals for hematology and serum chemistry values, and aspartate transaminase and lactate dehydrogenase activities were assayed. Expand
THE EFFECT OF DIETARY AFLATOXIN ON WILD TURKEY POULTS
TLDR
This study shows that short-term aflatoxin ingestion by wild turkeys can induce undesirable physiologic changes; therefore, exposure ofWild turkeys to feeds containing aflatoxins levels of 100 μg a flatoxin/kg feed or more should be avoided. Expand
The toxicity of purified fumonisin B1 in broiler chicks.
TLDR
The results of this investigation agree with the results previously described, in which FB1 was supplied to diets from the use of F. moniliforme-contaminated grain; therefore, theUse of such material as the source of the mycotoxin in animal feeding studies is appropriate. Expand
A System for Production of Commercial Quantities of Human Lactoferrin: A Broad Spectrum Natural Antibiotic
TLDR
A modification of this production system combined with a classical strain improvement program has enabled production of levels of recombinant human lactoferrin in excess of 2 g/l, which functions as a potent broad spectrum antimicrobial protein. Expand
Ochratoxicosis in the broiler chicken.
Investigation and standardization of prothrombin times in chickens.
TLDR
Using the best conditions, the mean prothrombin time for 1200 birds determined over a 6-month period was 9.4 sec. with an individual range of 7.18-11.4 seconds, which represents a significantly lower prothROMbin time with lower variability than that reported in the literature. Expand
Effect of aflatoxin on the humoral and cell-mediated immune systems of the chicken.
TLDR
A significant decrease in concentrations of serum immunoglobulins (Ig) IgG and IgA, but no IgM, however, did occur in chicks given dietary aflatoxin from hatching to 4 weeks or between 2 and 4 weeks of age, while humoral immunity, as measured by the ability of 4-week-old chicks to produce natural agglutinins to rabbit red blood cells, was not significantly altered. Expand
Severe oral lesions in chickens caused by ingestion of dietary fusariotoxin T-2.
TLDR
The data suggest that the role of fusariotoxin T-2 in field cases of moldy corn toxicosis should be reinvestigated since oral lesions were not mentioned in the original descriptions of the disease. Expand
Effect of dietary aflatoxin on fertility, hatchability, and progeny performance of broiler breeder hens
TLDR
Fertility was not affected by dietary aflatoxin, hatchability of fertile eggs decreased significantly within week 1 of toxin feeding, and no latent effects of the aflat toxin or its metabolites were observed on the performance of surviving chicks. Expand
