Protective Effect of Hypophae Rhamnoides Oil Against Ochratoxicosis in Chickens
AbstractThe aim of this study was evaluate the prophylactic of oil Hypophae rhamnoides, when included in a diet containing ochratoxins and fed to broiler chicks. The criteria of the evaluation included body weight gain, haematological profile and biochemistry, in addition to associated lesions in chicks. The biochemical analysis showed a considerable decrease in the serum alanine aminotransferase (ALT), increase of aspartate aminotransferase (AST), uric acid, cholesterol levels, a reduction in the serum total proteins, albumin and globulins. The addition of H. rhamnoides oil, diminished the adverse effects of ochratoxins. Chickens who received H. rhamnoides oil had a better body weight gain. Finally, it was concluded that effective in the amelioration of the toxic effects of aflatoxins that may be present in poultry rations. OTA residues from liver and kidney were significantly reduced in chickens treated with H. rhamnoides oil.
