Slovakia
Working Groups: WG1, WG3
Scientific Expertise: Prevention and treatment of infection by pathogens (e.g. vaccination, antibiotics, fungicide)
Contribution: Because our team studies natural additives (e.g.at our workplace characterized beneficial bacteria, their bacteriocins- antimicrobial substances), we would like to apply those substances in animal system as one way to check biosecurity in animal production with impact on environment. Complex of studies is applied involving (except microbiota evaluation meaning anrtimicrobial effect), immunity parameters, oxidative stress, mineral levels evaluation, morphometry and also quality of meat in case of broiler animals which follows aims of the Cost action in WG3 and especially task 3.4 checking effectivity of natural substances in animal model as biosecurity point.
Motivation: Motivation is in chance to meet people working in the task and to follow common line as to solve problems indicated, to exchange information, to adapt, to spread ways for biosecirity control.
Scientific Background: Our team has long tradition in natural additives (e.g.at our workplace characterized beneficial bacteria, their bacteriocins- antimicrobial substances) application in animal system as one way to check biosecurity in animal production with impact on environment. Complex of studies is applied involving (except microbiota evaluation), immunity parameters, oxidative stress, mineral levels evaluation, morphometry and also quality of meat in case of broiler animals which follows aims of the Cost action in WG3 and especially task 3.4.
