To investigate the role of prostaglandins (PGs) in the behavioral and physiological effects of lipopolysaccharide (LPS) in birds, chickens were injected with indomethacin (Ind) peripherally (IP, 5 mg) or centrally (ICV, 100 micrograms) and their behavior and body temperature following a challenge IP injection of LPS (2.5 mg… CONTINUE READING
