Ability of Modified Glucomannan to Sequestrate T-2 Toxin in the Gastrointestinal Tract of Chicken
N. B. Reddy, G. Devegowda, R. G. Shashidhara
The ability of Modified Glucomannan (MG) to bind T-2 toxin (T-2) in the gastrointestinal tract has been tested in vivo by feeding 120 five-wk-old broiler chicken with the following six treatment diets, 1) Control diet; 2) Control (0.1%); 3) Control2 (500 ppb); 4) Control2 (500 ppb) (0.1%); 5) Control2 (1,000 ppb) and 6) Control2 (1,000 ppb) (0.1%). Twenty birds were assigned to each treatment group, which had five experimental groups. Four birds of each experimental group were sacrificed at an interval of 30 min i.e. at 0, 30, 60, 90 and 120 min after feeding experimental diets. The whole gut contents of each bird were collected, dried and toxin concentration was determined. Percent T-2 recovered from the gut was significantly lower (p<0.05) in the groups fed MG at all the time intervals. The percent T-2 adsorbed by the MG at different T-2 levels (500 and 1,000 ppb) was 15.97 and 14.77, 22.53 and 22.67, 26.88 and 28.03, and 31.50 and 31.83 at 30, 60, 90 and 120 min, respectively.
