Abstract

Authors investigated the effects of T-2/HT-2 toxin (2.05 mg/kg feed) in feed on the glutathione redox system and on the lipid peroxidation processes in chickens for a 14-d period. The consumption of high amount of T-2/HT-2 toxin increased the amount and activity of glutathione redox system, which efficiently protected the lipids from harmful peroxidation processes in the tissues investigated.
