This study was conducted to verify whether vitamin (Vit) E or natural clay as feed additives has the potential to modulate the deleterious effects resulting from exposure to cadmium (Cd) in growing Japanese quail. 648 Japanese quail chicks (1 week old) were used to evaluate the effects of dietary Cd (0, 40, 80 and 120 mg/kg diet) and two levels of Vit E (0, 250 mg/kg diet) or two levels of natural clay (0 and 100 mg/kg diet) to study the influences of Cd, Vit E, clay or their different…

Detoxification Impacts of Ascorbic Acid and Clay on Laying Japanese Quail Fed Diets Polluted by Various Levels of Cadmium

It could be concluded that the consumption of polluted diets Cd causes deleterious effects on the productive performance of laying Japanese quail and the addition of ascorbic acid or natural clay to the diets causes beneficial effects on productive performance traits, improves egg quality criteria and diminishes the toxic effects of Cd.

Role of clay in detoxification of aflatoxin B1 in growing Japanese quail with reference to gender.

Conclusively, the consumption of polluted diets with AFB1 caused deleterious effects on the growth performance and blood biochemicals components of Japanese quail, while dietary addition of natural clay to the diet of growing Japanese quails caused beneficial effects.

Mitigation Effects of Vitamin C and E Against Copper Toxicity in Broiler Chickens, With Reference to Biochemical, Genotoxicity and Pathological Studies

Copper (Cu) is necessary for biological utility, nevertheless when existing in abundance; it can produce plentiful injurious impacts. This enquiry was carried out to explore the efficiency of

Evaluation of dietary presence or use of cadmium in poultry

SUMMARY Cadmium is a heavy metal and non-essential in animal nutrition. In practice, cadmium toxicity is quite rare in farm animals because the level in commercial diets is very low. However,

Mitigating the Growth, Biochemical Changes, Genotoxic and Pathological Effects of Copper Toxicity in Broiler Chickens by Supplementing Vitamins C and E

The obtained results suggested that addition of vitamin C and E, especially in combination, was beneficial for alleviating the harmful effects of CuSO4 toxicity on growth performance and liver histoarchitecture in broiler chickens.

Amelioration of toxicopathological effects of cadmium with silymarin and milk thistle in male Japanese quail (Coturnix japonica)

It may be concluded that MT and SL proved beneficial in cadmium-induced toxicities in Japanese quails by ameliorating mortality, organ weights, spermatogenesis, and histopathological lesions.

Hematobiochemical effects of cadmium intoxication in male Japanese quail (Coturnix japonica) and its amelioration with silymarin and milk thistle

Abstract The present study was designed to investigate the toxico-pathological effect of cadmium (Cd) and its amelioration with silymarin (SL) and milk thistle (MT) in male Japanese quail (Coturnix

Adverse effects of cadmium on poultry and role of selenium against it: An updated review

: Cadmium (Cd) is a toxic heavy metal, discharged into environments naturally or anthropogenically, where industrial and agricultural revolutions have led to serious Cd pollution into the

Tissue Bioaccumulation and Toxicopathological Effects of Cadmium and Its Dietary Amelioration in Poultry-a Review.

Cadmium (Cd) has been recognized as one of the most toxic heavy metals, which is continuously discharged into environments through anthropogenic (industrial activities, fertilizer production, and



Retention of cadmium in the tissues of broiler chicks by dietary supplemental microbial phytase

In conclusion, addition of 600 PU feed of phytase per kg of diet compensates this effect and lowers the cadmium burden by up to 60%.

Toxicity of cadmium and lead in Gallus gallus domesticus assessment of body weight and metal content in tissues after metal dietary supplements.

This experiment was conducted to investigate the toxic effects of dietary Cd and Pb on chick's body weight and organ, content of the tissues of these two metals was also detected.

Effect of vitamin E on production performance and egg quality traits in Indian native Kadaknath hen.

It can be concluded that lower levels of dietary VE may be beneficial for production performance and Haugh unit score but have no effect on egg quality traits in Indian reared Kadaknath hens.

The aim of this study was to investigate the effects of different levels of cadmium supplementation (0, 5, 10, 20, 40 and 80 mg/kg) in the diet on performance, egg quality, tibia biomechanical

Effect of different dietray levels of cadmium and selinium and their mixture on 2. Biochemical constituents of broiler chickens.

This investigation was carried out to study the effect of selenium (Se) and cadmium (Cd) separately and their mixture on biochemical constituents of broiler chicks. A total number of 320, one day old

The role of organic selenium in cadmium toxicity: effects on broiler performance and health status.

The present study indicated that Se can help against the negative effects of Cd, but cannot counteract all of its negative effects.

Tolerance of the chick to excess dietary cadmium as influenced by dietary cysteine and by experimental infection with Eimeria acervulina.

Three experiments were conducted with 9-d-old crossbred chicks to determine the effect of supplemental L-cysteine.H2O on tolerance to excess dietary Cd and Cystein supplementation increased kidney cadmium concentration even further in E. acervulina-infected birds.

Effect of different levels of cadmium and selinium on 1-performance of broiler chickens.

A total number of 540, one day old of commercial broiler chicks were used to study the effect of selenium (Se) and cadmium (Cd) separately and in mixture on broiler chicks' performance (from one day

Cadmium and the food chain: the effect of dietary cadmium on tissue composition in chicks and laying hens.

The Cadmium content of body tissues and eggs was studied in broiler chicks and laying hens fed diets supplemented with 3, 12, and 48 microgram/g of cadmium and the transfer of dietary cadMium to the egg was found to be very low.

Model trial investigating retention in selected tissues using broiler chicken fed cadmium and humic acid

Cd levels detected in Group K are commonly found in market chickens and were assumed to be base background value; these represent 32%, 5.2% and 20% of allowed maximum residual limit (MRL) in kidney, liver and muscle, respectively.
