    Aflatoxins (AFS) are groups of toxin fungal toxins that are produced by different species of fungi such as Aspergillus flavus and Aspergillus Parasiticus. In this study Aflatoxin and two adsorbents (Zeolite and Mycosorb) was added to diet to evaluate some blood biochemical and enzyme activities in broiler chickens. Zeolite and Mycosorb added into the treatment basal diets at 3 g/kg and 1 g/kg levels which is contaminated level of 0.5 (AF0.5) or 1 ppm (AF1) aflatoxin/kg. A total of 189 broiler chicks were divided into 9 treatment groups: T1) Control, T2) AF0.5, T3) AF1, T4) Zeolite + (AF0.5), T5) Zeolite + (AF1), T6) Mycosorb + AF0.5, T7) Mycosorb + AF1, T8) Zeolite + Mycosorb + AF0 and T9) Zeolite + Mycosorb + AF1. The results showed that AFS in T2 and T3 groups in comparison with control caused a significant decrease in red blood cell, haematocrit and lympho.. Read More»
