The effects of the Saccharomyces cerevisiae extract on some organ, liver, and pancreatic digestive enzymes in breeder hens fed on aflatoxin (AF)-contaminated feed were investigated. Forty-eight 58-wk-old Ross 308 breeder hens were used. The hens were fed diets containing 0 or 100 µg of AF/kg and 0 or 1 g of S. cerevisiae/kg in a 2×2 factorial arrangement of treatments. Although serum alkaline phosphatase levels were significantly higher, serum alkaline aminotransferase (P=0.068) and gamma… CONTINUE READING
