Citrinin-Induced Toxicity in F 0 Male Wistar Rats: Clinico-Haematological and Serum Biochemical Alterations
The long-term dietary exposure to CIT in male rats resulted in anaemia, leucocytopenia due to lymphocy topenia and hepato-renal toxicity as evidenced by certain biochemical parameters.
Effects of Ochratoxin A Feeding on Organ Weights an d Gross Pathological Changes in Broiler Chicken and its Amelioration wit h Bantox
Received: 06/10/2017 Accepted: 02/12/2017 Abstract The present study was designed to study the amelior ative efficacy of Bantox, a commercial mycotoxin binder against ochratoxin A (OTA)induced toxic
Mycotoxicosis and its control in poultry: A review
The physical and chemical methods are impracticable in terms of safeguarding the nutritive quality of food and feed, while the biological methods are showing promising results in amelioration/ detoxification of mycotoxins/mycotoxicosis in poultry.
The ameliorative effects of glutathione on biochemical indices of goats exposed to lead
Glutathione ameliorated the undesirable effects of lead in the goats and the advantageous effects of glutathione in this research may be attributed to its bioprotective impacts.
Nutrient stability in mould-infested feed and mitigating effect of dietary supplemental vitamins in brown laying hens
It was concluded that mould contamination in feed compromised feed nutritive values, reduced bird performance and adversely impaired the liver of the experimental birds while tocopherol, retinol or a multivitamin supplementation relapses the damaging potential of mould and mycotoxin differently.
Effect of Dietary Inclusion of Mycodetox B2 on Liveability, Immunity and Organ Pathology During Aflatoxicosis in Turkey Poults
It was concluded that dietary AFB1 at 100 or 150ppb levels resulted in reduced liveability, immunity; decreased haemoglobin concentration, incr eased H/L ratio; and morphological and histopathological alterations in the internal organs.
Nephrotoxicity of ochratoxin-A in Japanese quail: A clinico-pathological study
Dietary inclusion of OTA led to anorexia, diarrhoea, marked depression in body weight and few typical nervous signs in the treated birds, and serum total protein and albumin levels in OTA treated birds were found to be significantly lower throughout the trial.
Mycobiota and Mycotoxic Contamination of Feed Cereals
Abstract The cereals are a suitable substrate for the growth of microscopic filamentous fungi. Micromycetes are capable of reducing the nutritional value of feedstuff and they can produce several
Heavy metals bioaccumulation in Berseem (Trifolium alexandrinum) cultivated in areas under intensive agriculture, Punjab, India
Berseem (Trifolium alexandrinum) is one of the main fodder crops of Punjab, India. But due to the heavy metal contamination of agricultural soils by anthropogenic activities, there is rise in metal


Immunosuppressive effect of combined citrinin and endosulfan toxicity in pregnant Wistar rats.
This paper aims to provide a history of veterinary pathology in India and some of the techniques used in the diagnosis and treatment of infectious disease in animals.
Organochlorine pesticide residues in dairy milk in and around Delhi.
A survey of dairy milk and milk products in and around Delhi, India, was undertaken to monitor the levels of DDT and HCH. The survey revealed that pesticide residue levels in milk often exceeded the
Nutritional aspects of fluoride toxicosis.

The chemical form of fluoride in the diet has a large influence on toxicity, and alternating periods of high and low exposure to fluoride appear to be more damaging to animals than the continuous intake of the same total amount.
Livestock poisoning from oil field drilling fluids, muds and additives.
The use and potential toxicity of various components of oil well drilling fluids, muds and additives are presented. Many components are extremely caustic resulting in rumenitis. Solvent and petroleum
Arsenic poisoning in livestock.
Arsenic is an important heavy metal intoxicant to livestock. Arsenical pesticides present significant hazards to animal health. The toxicity of arsenic varies with several factors--its chemical form,
Levels of Cadmium and Lead in Tissues of Freshwater Fish (Clarias batrachus L.) and Chicken in Western UP (India)
A survey was conducted in Western UP (Bareilly city), India to investigate the levels of Pb and Cd in the different tissues of fresh water fish (Clarias batrachus) and chicken to investigate their existence in environment as well as aquatic ecosystems in India.
The effects of cadmium in feed, and its amelioration with zinc, on element balances in sheep.
It is concluded that low levels of Cd in sheep feed can increase the Cd balance if adequate Zn is not provided, which can lead to subclinical mineral disturbances and changes in the mineral concentrations in wool.
Citrinin and endosulfan induced maternal toxicity in pregnant Wistar rats: pathomorphological study
The lesions were consistent and more severe in the combination treatment group compared with the individual treatment groups, suggesting an additive interaction of CIT and endosulfan in inducing maternal toxicity in Wistar rats.
Blood lead levels in lactating cows reared around polluted localities; transfer of lead into milk.
