Dr. Joseph Garcia started his presentations on “Toxin in Poultry” by showing some of the photographs of the postmortem lesion caused by mycotoxicity in poultry. These photographs of postmortem lesions give a clear idea about different lesions in different organs caused by different mycotoxins. He also talked about the prevalence of different toxins in the feed and how Biobantox and Biobantox Plus can play a critical role in toxicity prevention and management in poultry.

Afterwards, Dr. Joseph Garcia updated us on endotoxins and their importance in poultry production. The endotoxins disrupt gut health in poultry. Endotoxins, also known as lipopolysaccharides (LPS), are part of the outer membrane of the cell wall of all gram-negative bacteria (e.g., E. coli, Salmonella spp., Shigella spp., and Pseudomonas spp., among others) that are released from the bacterial cell wall by shedding or through bacterial lysis. As the gram-negative bacteria are part of the poultry microbiota, lipopolysaccharides (LPS) are also present in the intestine. Under eubiosis, this does not affect animals negatively because intestinal epithelial cells are poorly responsive to lipopolysaccharides (LPS) when stimulated from the apical side.

Endotoxins are released into the systemic circulation by gram-negative bacteria whenever we use antibiotics against these gram-negative bacteria. These released endotoxins in the systemic circulation of birds affect their health and reproduction. In vitro and in vivo studies of Biobantox Plus have shown binding efficiency against endotoxins (lipopolysaccharides). Endotoxins, pesticides, and mycotoxins adversely affect the immune system and performance of birds. He concluded that Biobantox Plus is very effective in binding endotoxins along with the adsorption of mycotoxins and pesticides, thus keeping the birds health in good condition.

Dr. Joseph Garcia also mentioned immunosuppression caused by mycotoxins and subsequent vaccine failures. He emphasized that one should be very careful while selecting a toxin binder, as some agents, such as activated charcoal, if included as a toxin binder, may have deleterious effects on health by binding nutrients such as vitamins and minerals from the feed. Biobantox Plus takes care of mycotoxins, endotoxins, and pesticides and helps maintain the optimal health of the birds, resulting in better performance.
