Sublethal doses (0.00, 0.25, 0.50 and 1.00 mg/kg b.w./day) of vomitoxin (deoxynivalenol; DON) were studied for their effects on humoral and cellular immunity and serum proteins of inbred, male Swiss Webster mice in a series of 4 separate experiments. Vomitoxin was added to basal diet (less than the detection limit, i.e., less than 0.05 micrograms of vomitoxin per g of feed) and administered to mice for 5 weeks beginning at 21 days of age. Mice in experiment 2 were fed the basal diet for 40 days… CONTINUE READING
