Effect of Copper on Plasma Ceruloplasmin and Antioxidant Ability in Broiler Chickens Challenged by Lipopolysaccharide

Abstract

The effects of dietary copper (Cu) supplementation in broiler chickens challenged with a single injection of Salmonella typhymurium lipopolysaccharide (LPS) on the antioxidant capacity and plasma levels of ceruloplasmin (Cp) were evaluated. The broiler chickens were provided with a basal diet or diets supplemented with 8 and 50 mg/kg Cu from 1d of age. At… (More)
