Dietary supplementation with Lactobacillus fermentum I5007 improves the anti-oxidative activity of weanling piglets challenged with diquat

, : Dietary supplementation with Lactobacillus fermentum I5007 improves the anti-oxidative activity of weanling piglets challenged with diquat. Journal of Applied Microbiology 114(6): 1582-1591

To determine the effects of Lactobacillus fermentum I5007 on the redox state of piglets oxidatively stressed with diquat. and ResultsTwenty-four, 28-day old barrows were used in a 2 x 2 factorial design experiment with the main effects being L. fermentum supplementation and diquat challenge. Half of the pigs (n=12) were orally administered with 20 ml of a solution containing 108 CFU ml?1 of L. fermentum each morning of the 21 day trial while the remainder received saline. On d 8, these two groups were further subdivided so that half of the pigs in each group (n=6) were intraperitoneally injected with 10 mg kg?1 BW diquat while the remainder received saline. The diquat-injected pigs had significantly poorer performance and increased levels of plasma cortisol, adrenaline, carbonyl and malondialdehyde. L. fermentum supplementation significantly increased superoxide dismutase and glutathione and increased the ability to inhibit superoxide anion production in liver and muscle. L. fermentum improved the anti-oxidative defense system and alleviated damage caused by diquat.
