Use of biomarkers on intestinal health

Intestinal health is essential for the general health and well-being of animals. It has been described that non-adequate ingredients or a certain amount of feed could stress the digestive tract affecting intestinal function.

The deficiencies in intestinal health include:

  • Shifts in the composition of the intestinal microbiome (Dysbiosis)
  • Leakage of the mucosal barrier
  • Inflammation

 

Since the ban on growth-promoting antimicrobials in animal feed, these dysbiosis-related problems have become a significant issue on poultry, especially in intensive animal farming. The economic and animal welfare consequences are considerable. Consequently, there is a need to continuously monitor the intestinal health status, particularly in intensively reared animals, where the intestinal function is often pushed to the limit.

Therefore, the research in the biomarkers discovery and use allows early detection of dysbiosis-related intestinal health issues.
