EFFECT OF FRUCTOOLIGOSACCHARIDES(FOS) ON GROWTH PERFORMANCE,IMMUNE FUNCTION AND ENDOCRINE SECRETION IN CHICKS

GAO Feng,ZHOU Guang-hong,HAN Zheng-kang(Nanjing Agricultural University,Nanjing 210095,China)  
Two experiments were conducted to determine the effects of diet supplemented with fructooligosaccharide(FOS) preparations on growth performances,immune function and endocrine secretion in chicks.48 seven-day-old chicks were divided into two groups randomly in each experiment,namely,control,control+0.05% FOS.The results showed that basal diet supplemented with FOS significantly increased body weight gains and feed conversion ratio(P0.05) in 21-days-old chicks.Relative weight of immunity organ,T lymphocytes blastogenic responses to PHA,natural killer cell activity and serum antibody titres to newcastle disease virus increased significantly(P0.05).Blood T3 and insulin level were elevated significantly(P0.05),while there was no significant change in T4 contents.
