Dr. Fathy Farouk Mohamed, professor of Nutrition and Clinical Nutrition at Cairo University, addressed the health and economic impacts of bacterial enteritis during an exhibitor seminar at VIV MEA 2016 in Abu Dhabi on Feb. 15. With more than 35 published papers in scientific journals, Mohamed is a well known authority on avian nutrition and immunity.
“Historically, the economic impact of bacterial enteritis was focused on mortality, but subclinical losses due to poor growth and feed conversion are also substantial,” said Mohamed, technical consultant for Amlan International. He discussed the health, performance and economic losses caused by bacterial enteritis (BE), including an in-depth discussion on the microbiota, biotoxins and remedies for preventing or alleviating BE-caused challenges. He also detailed the avian digestive tract structure and natural gut defenses for a comprehensive view of intestinal health.
Mohamed is a former dean, faculty of Veterinary Medicine, at Cairo University; Peace Fellow at the University of Wisconsin-Madison; and has spent more than 25 years as a technical consultant for feed, premix and additive companies.
