Stress factors such as handling, sudden environmental changes, feeding programmes, diet composition changes, vaccination, disease challenges, infections and impaired immune response affect animal health and productivity.
Animals possess limited natural resistance and immunity against such stresses leading often to oxidative stress where the animal is no longer capable of detoxifying the reactive oxygen species at a molecular level at the rate they are formed. The impact of such stress factors gets amplified in the presence of toxins.
1. Preventing Oxidative stress
2. Liver & Kidney support
3. Reducing immune suppression & strengthening the animal’s natural immune response
4. Biotransformation and binding of Fusarium
5. Binding & Adsorption
A new avenue to measure the impact of toxins on animals
Innovad has collaborated with the University of Ghent and is funding breakthrough research on novel ways to evaluate the systemic impact of feed toxins and their intermediates on animals. This new research focuses on exposure assessment, as it is identifying novel biomarkers and is developing the appropriate analytical tools to determine toxic metabolites in animal biofluids. Such Biomonitoring could provide us with more reliable data related to animal intoxication via contaminated feed and/or stress in situ. Thus, it has great potential for significant economic impact in animal farming.
