Abstract:

Ochratoxinis the mycotoxin that targets mainly kidney and liver. In this experiment, broilers were fed ochratoxin@ 100 ppb and 200 ppb for 30 days daily, it led to depression in haematocrit values and delayed clotting whereas significant increase in serum uric acid, creatinine and serum triglyceride. There was also decrease in serum level of total protein and cholesterol. Immunological status of toxicated birds was diminished as observed through Haemagglutination Inhibition titer (against New Castle disease virus) and skin reactivity test against DNCB (2,4, Dintrochlorobenzene). Addition of 20% aqueous extract of Achyranthes aspera @1% of feed into the broiler feed containing ochratoxin showed improved haematological, biochemical, immunological values as well as gross and histopathological changes were comparable to healthy birds. Thus, the experiment manifested ameliorative effect of Achyranthes aspera against ochratoxin.
