Lead (Pb) has extensive commercial and industrial use despite of its recognized as health hazard. The therapeutic application of garlic ( Allium sativum ) was investigated for preventing the toxic effect of lead (Pd) in lead exposed chickens. 350 commercial broiler chickens were grouped into five such as T 0 , T 1 , T 2 , T 3 and T 4 consisting of 70 birds each where T 0 served as control. T 1 was provided with lead acetate at 100mg/kg body weight, T 2 had 100mg/kg lead acetate + 1% garlic… Expand

Effect of Purslane powder and Zinc supplementation on the performance, egg quality, antioxidant system and liver histopathology of lead-exposed laying Quails
To determine effects of Purslane (Portulaca oleracea) and zinc supplementation in lead exposed quails, 180 adult female quails allocated into 9 groups. 1. Negative Control (NC, Fed with aExpand
Influences of lead exposure on its accumulation in organs, meat, eggs and bone during laying period of hens
It was confirmed that egg laying worked as a potential pathway for hens to excrete Pb as Pb concentrations in eggshell and yolk increased from 0.10 to 3.11 ppm, indicating its low risk to food safety. Expand

Effect of garlic on lead contents in chicken tissues.
Lead has been indicted to be involved in the aetiology of human and animal diseases. In view of earlier literature indicating that garlic antagonized lead toxicity, we have investigated the possibleExpand
The magnitude of lead toxicity in broiler chickens.
Lead additions to the diet resulted in a dose-related increase of Pb in blood, kidney, liver and tibia and the higher level of calcium in the feed significantly reduced the negative effects of P b on ALAD inhibition. Expand
