  In order to evaluate the effects of dietary probiotics, yeast, vitamin E and vitamin C supplementation on performance, serum and yolk cholesterol and immune response of heat stressed laying hens, a trial was conducted with sixty white layer hens of Hy-Line variety. Experiment was conducted by using completely randomized design with 5 treatments, 3 replicates and 4 hens in each replicate. The treatments involved: control, basal diet plus 50 mg multi strains probiotic, basal diet plus 1 g yeast of Saccharomyces cerevisiae, basal diet plus 200 mg vitamin C and basal diet plus 200 mg vitamin E per Kg of diet. Results indicated no significant difference in hen performance, egg quality (shell thickness, shell resistance, shell percent and haugh unit) and serum and yolk cholesterol concentrations. Yolk percent was increased significantly and the highest yolk percent was observed in vitamin E treatment. Immune response of laying hens with multi strains probiotic and yeast supplementation was greater than others. However, dietary vitamin E and C supplementation increased immune response, but differences were not significant compare with other groups.

  A study was conducted on the impact of aflatoxin (AF) and mycotoxin binders on immunization against Infectious Bursal Disease (IBD) and Infectious Bronchitis (IB) in chickens. Broiler chicks (7-day-old) were randomly assigned to 9 dietary treatments with 4 replicates of 12 chicks each. Treatments were 1) control; 2) diet containing corn naturally contaminated with AF (NCD); 3) NCD + 0.2% Farmagulator DRYTM humate (FH); 4) NCD + 0.4% FH; 5) NCD + 0.6% FH; 6) NCD + 0.8% FH; 7) NCD + 1% FH; 8) NCD + 0.5% sodium bentonite (SB); and 9) NCD + 0.1% esterified glucomannan (E-GM). Data were evaluated with ANOVA for a complete randomized design, using the general linear models procedure of SAS software. Compared to control diet; the antibody titers of IB and IBD were significantly lower in the 254 ppb aflatoxin fed chicks from 28 to 35 days of age. The addition of E-GM, SB, and FH to the aflatoxin-containing diet significantly ameliorated the adverse effects of aflatoxin on IBD and IB antibody titers, but FH supplementation to the contaminated diet with aflatoxin proved to be much more effective in the amelioration of the adverse effect of aflatoxin on humoral immunity against IB.
