  An experiment was conducted to study the effect of Turmeric Rhizome Powder (TRP) on some blood parameters in broiler chickens. A corn-soybean meal based diet containing levels of TRP (0.00, 0.25, 0.50 and 0.75%) in a completely randomized design with 4 treatments and 5 replicates of 10 birds each were fed to 200 day-old Ross male broiler chickens from 0-49 days of age. For measuring blood parameters (albumin, total protein, total cholesterol, HDL and LDL-cholesterol and triglyceride) at 21, 35, and 42 and red blood cells, hemoglobin and hematocrit value at 21 and 42 days of age, serum blood samples from each replicate of treatments were collected. Inclusion of TRP into the diets significantly increased total cholesterol, HDL-cholesterol and haemoglobin and decreased LDL-cholesterol, VLDL-cholesterol and red blood cells at 42 days of age (p<0.05). TRP also significantly decreased blood albumin (p<0.05). Under the condition of this study, it was concluded that TRP might have some positive effects on health status of the broiler chickens.

  An experiment was conducted to determine effects of dietary Arginine (ARG) on growth performance and blood serum parameters in broiler chickens. A corn-soybean meal based diet containing different levels of ARG (0, 0.67, 1.37, 2.07 and 2.77) for the starter (0, 0.53, 1.1, 1.68 and 2.25) for the grower and (0, 0.52, 1.04, 1.56 and 2.08) for the finisher was used. In a completely randomized design with five treatments of five replicates each and 10 chickens per replicate, 250 Cobb 500 male broiler chickens from 0-49 days of age were used. Growth performance (body weight gain, feed intake and feed: gain ratio) and blood serum (albumin, total protein, glucose, cholesterol, triglyceride, urea, uric acid, aspartate amino-transferase, alanine amino-transferase, alkalin phosphatase, lactic dehydrogenase and creatine kinase) parameters were measured at 27 and 49 days of age. Increase of dietary ARG increased (p<0.05) body weight gain, feed intake, albumin, creatine kinase, glucose, urea and uric acid and decreased (p>0.05) aspartate amino-transferase and cholesterol. It was concluded that dietary ARG might have positive effects on health status of the broiler chickens.

  Infectious Bursal Disease (IBD) continues to pose potential threat to poultry industry all over the world. The disease can spell disaster not only through its infection but also by break of immunity in chickens vaccinated for other diseases. On the other hand, arginine (Arg), a ubiquitous, semi-essential amino acid has emerged as an imunostimulant from variety of human and animal studies. In the present study, we demonstrate the stimulatory effects of Arg on systemic immune response in chickens challenged by orally administration of intermediate plus strain of IBD virus at 28 days of age. A corn-soybean meal based diet containing different levels of Arg (0, 0.67, 1.37, 2.07 and 2.77) for the starter, (0, 0.53, 1.1, 1.68 and 2.25) for the grower and (0, 0.52, 1.04, 1.56 and 2.08) for the finisher was used. In a completely randomized design with five treatments of five replicates each and 10 chickens per replicate, 250 Cobb500 male broiler chickens from 0-49 days of age were used. To measure the innate, cellular and humoral immunity indicators (interferon-α, interferon-γ, immunoglobulin G) at 27, 35, 42 and 49 days of age, serum samples from each replicate of treatments were collected and subjected to ELISA. The result showed that Arg supplementation in the chickens basal diets significantly increased the serum levels of interferon-α, interferon-γ, immunoglobulin G at 35, 42 and 49 days of age (p<0.05). The different levels of Arg at 27 days of age did not significantly affect interferon-α, interferon-γ, whereas Arg at 27 days of age significantly increased immunoglobulin G (p<0.05). These results revealed that arginine stimulates systematic immune response against intermediate plus strain of IBDV.
