Ph.D. thesis: Investigation dietary nutrient nanoparticles in broiler nutrition Interest's research: Nanoparticles nutrients, Medicine plants, Immune system, Oxidative enzymes


This trial was carried out to investigate the effect of dietary zinc oxide nanoparticles (Zno-NPs) on the liver enzymes and some blood parameters from hatch to 14 days of broiler age (1-14 days). Experiential diets were including: T1 (control and without Zno-NPs) and T2, T3, T4 and T5, provided by supplementation basal diet with 30, 60, 90 or 120 mg of Zno-NPs/kg, respectively. Three hundred one-day-male broilers (Ross-308) distributed in a completely randomized design (CRD) was composed of five experimental groups, four replicate and 60 chicks in each experimental pen. Results indicated that dietary Zno-NPs had significantly increased total antioxidant capacity (TAC) (P<0.05), activity of supper oxide dismutase (SOD) (P<0.05) and glutathione peroxidase (GPx) (P>0.05) in comparison with control group in comparison to control and other treatments. As well, malondialdehyde (MDA) concentration decreased (P>0.05), although no statistically significant. The level of serum alkaline phosphatase (ALP), Aspartate transferase (AST), alanine transferase (ALT), and lactate dehydrogenase (LDH) enzymes activity decreased (P>0.05), especially, in birds fed diet supplemented with 60 (T3) and/or 90 (T4) mg of Zno-NPs compared to control treatment. In conclusion, results of present research suggested that Zno-NPs may be improved oxidant state of broilers during starter stage. As well, optimum changes observed in the levels 60 and/or 90 mg of Zno-NPs per kg of basal diet.
