Microbiological isolation of the main bacteria causing liver diseases in poultry production to be conducted by postgraduate students of Veterinary Sciences

 

The liver has an essential role for the animals since it performs basic functions such as detoxification of the organism and synthesis of proteins, lipids, and carbohydrates. However, chicken liver can harbor various types of microorganisms that may affect human health.

In poultry, maintaining the liver in optimal conditions is imperative to obtain good productive results, because it is in charge of the synthesis of the necessary components to produce meat and eggs. It is also crucial to maintain the liver condition to ensure food safety.
