Kor NM, Ziaei N, Moradi K., Effect of Vitamin-E and Selenomethionine supplements on serum biochemistry in Lohman layers, Onl J Vet Res., 27 (11): 594-603. Effect of Vitamin-E and selenomethionine on blood biochemistry in 65 week old Lohman Lite Layers are described. Nine groups of 6 hens each were given 0, 125 and 250mg tocopherol acetate, 0, 0.75 and 1.5mg/kg selenomethionine were assigned to 9 diets and 5 replicates of 6 hens per cage daily for 6 weeks. At end of experiment wing vein blood from one hen per replicate was taken for sera stored at -20C, glucose, cholesterol, triglycerides (TG), low and high density lipoproteins (LDL and HDL), total protein (TP), albumin and globulin. Increasing vitamin E and selenium in diets reduced cholesterol ~24%, ~TG 15% and LDL ~37% but boosted HDL ~40% (P < 0.02). However we found no effect on serum glucose, protein, albumin or globulins.


Key Words: Vitamin-E, Selenomethionine, Lohman layer, serum, biochemistry.
