Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The Special Issue will be devoted to various factors in commercial egg, meat and milk production  leading to oxidative stress. The molecular mechanisms of antioxidant–prooxidant disbalance in the body leading to oxidative stress will be considered. The application of nutritional approaches in order to modulate antioxidant defenses and enhance animal resistance to commercially-relevant stresses will be analyzed. This includes, but is not restricted to, vitamin E, carotenoids, vitamin C, carnitine, betaine, selenium and other nutritional antioxidants. Relationships between the antioxidant/redox status of the animals and their health, including gut health, immunity and inflammation, will be discussed. Practical restrictions and unresolved questions related to the development of effective anti-stress strategies in commercial poultry, pig, dairy and beef industries will receive special attention.

Prof. Dr. Peter F. Surai
