Table 2 Intestinal lesion scores1 observed in broiler chickens 6 d after mixed Eimeria species challenge at 14 d of age and provided with diets supplemented with salinomaycin (Sal), probiotic (Pro), combination of vitamin E, C, and selenium (ECSe), and F. angulate extracts at the levels of 200 and 400 m/kg (FAE200 and FAE400, respectively) in experiment 2

From: Protective and immunostimulatory effects of in-feed preparations of an anticoccidial, a probiotic, a vitamin-selenium complex, and Ferulago angulata extract in broiler chickens infected with Eimeria species

  1. a-cMeans within a column not sharing the same superscript are different at P < 0.05
  2. 1Values are means of 10 cages per treatment combination with 2 male broiler chickens (n = 10 per treatment). The average of 2 birds per replicate cage was applied for statistical analysis of these variables
  3. 2Negative control (not treated and uninfected)
  4. 3Positive control (not treated, but infected)
  5. 4Pooled standard error of mean
