The effect of acute oral selenium toxicosis on the rate of lipid peroxidation, on the amount of reduced glutathione as well as on glutathione-peroxidase activity of the blood (plasma and red blood cells) and liver was studied in broiler chicken. Cockerels (28-day-old) were treated with selenium (4.85 mg/kg b.w.) administered intraoesophageally in the form of sodium selenite. Samples were at the onset of clinical signs (3 h after treatment) and 2 and 4 h thereafter. The malondialdehyde content… CONTINUE READING
