OXIDATIVE STATUS AND THE INCIDENCE OF FATTY LIVER HEMORRHAGIC SYNDROME IN LAYING HENS FED FLAX SEEDS

Description

The current trial was performed to investigate the influence of flax seeds on the oxidative status and incidence of FLHS in laying hens. Fifty (Hisex) bird, 20 week old, were obtained from Animal Production Research Center (kuku), were divided into two groups (n=25) for each one. The control group (A) was under control diet based on corn, maintains the (NRC, 1994) requirements for laying hens, the experimental group, supplemented by 10% flax seeds added to the diet. The trial lasted for eight weeks, blood samples were collected once per month (week 4 and 8), in EDTA coated vials, immediately placed into iced-container, centrifuged at 3000 rpm/20 min, samples were separated in aliquot, and stored at -20ºC and -80ºC until analysis. No incidence of fatty liver hemorrhagic syndrome was noticed after feeding laying hens diet containing 10% flax seeds for two months. Plasma analysis for enzymatic and non-enzymatic antioxidants, revealed no significant different levels of uric acid, malondialdehyde (MDA), vitamin C, and vitamin E between the control group and the treated one, while catalase (CAT), superoxide dismutase (SOD), and vitamin A, levels were significantly enhanced by the addition of 10% flax seeds.
