Findings on Poultry Farming Reported by Investigators at Bahauddin Zakariya University (A review of beta-glucans as a growth promoter and antibiotic alternative against enteric pathogens in poultry)

By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Agriculture Week Researchers detail new data in Agriculture - Poultry Farming. According to news reporting originating from Multan, Pakistan, by VerticalNews correspondents, research stated, "The emergence of microbial challenges in commercial poultry farming causes significant economic losses. Vaccination is effective in preventing diseases of single aetiology while antibiotics have an advantage over vaccination in controlling diseases of multiple aetiologies."

Our news editors obtained a quote from the research from Bahauddin Zakariya University, "As the occurrence of antibiotic resistance is a serious problem, there is increased pressure on producers to reduce antibiotic use in poultry production. Therefore, it is essential to use alternative substances to cope with microbial challenges in commercial poultry farming. This review will focus on the role of beta-glucans originating from yeast cell wall (YCW) as a growth promoter and antibiotic alternative. beta-glucans have the ability to modulate the intestinal morphology by increasing the number of goblet cells, mucin expression and cells expressing secretory IgA (sIgA) with increased sIgA in the intestinal lumen and decreased bacterial translocation to different organs. beta-glucans also increase the gene expression of tight junction (TJ) proteins which maintain the integrity of the intestinal wall in broiler chickens."

According to the news editors, the research concluded: "However, further studies are required to optimise the dosage and source of beta-glucans to determine effects on growth performance and mechanisms against enteric pathogens."
