Antioxidants Status and Degree of Oxidative Stress in Mastitic and Healthy Camel (Camelus dromedarius)

H.E. Mohamed    

Abstract: Oxidative stress is an imbalance between oxidant and antioxidant in favour of the former. The aim of this investigation was to assess the antioxidant status and degree of oxidative stress in the blood of camels (Camelus dromedarius) in the sub clinical form of mastitis. The research was conducted on 46 camels. The results indicated a reduction in both individual and Total Antioxidant Status (TAS) and increase in lipid peroxidation, manifested by an increase in Malondialdehyde (MDA) in mastitic dairy camels compared with healthy ones. A similar trend of reduction (p< 0.05) was observed in copper and zinc levels in mastitic camels compared with healthy.
