Coccidiosis: one of the major economically important diseases of Poultry & its control with Coccicare.

Rainy season is favourable for Coccidiosis. Coccidiosis is usually an acute invasion and destruction of intestinal mucosa by protozoa of the genera Eimeria. Clinical signs include diarrhoea, rise in temperature, inappetence, weight loss, emaciation, and in extreme cases, death. However, many infections are subclinical. Coccidiosis is an economically important disease of poultry.

Coccidiosis is a parasitic disease of the intestinal tract of animals caused by coccidian protozoa. The disease spreads from one animal to another by contact with infected faeces or ingestion of infected tissue. Diarrhoea, which may become bloody in severe cases, is the primary symptom.

Prevention and control of disease require a careful evaluation of the entire farm and establishment of a series of biosecurity measures that allow assessing the possible challenges and their impact on the production system. Once established, all factors determining disease can be better recognized and corrected. In general, the recommended approach is to perform a risk assessment and establish the Hazard analysis and critical control point (HACCP) principles on the poultry farm, determining the points where potential hazards could occur and biosecurity measures have to be implemented. Biosecurity involves measures at the level of environmental control and management, including elaboration of vaccination and medication programs and also application of effective cleansers, sanitizer, and disinfectants. These biosecurity measures are essential to control the diseases and reduce their economic and public health significance.

Prevention and Control: –
Everybody is aware that coccidiosis is self-controlling disease. However, every farmer suffers some or major economic losses due to coccidiosis. As we know Prevention is better than treatment.

Now a days Monensin – 8 % + Nicarbazin + 8% is regular control measure used by most of the farmers. However, if those novel solution fortified with Vit K3 and Curcumin extract as feed additive could havetremendous impact on control of coccidiosis.

After thorough research by GLOCREST team – the novel combo of Monensin : 8 % + Nicarbazin: 8%, Vit K3 and Curcumin has been developed a satisfying solution to address this burning issue and launched a product called Coccicare. InCoccicare, Vit K3 is added.It prevents internal bleeding in intestine which occurs due to coccidiosis. Monensin along with Nicarbazin acts synergistically.

Explanation for the mechanism of action Coccicare is that the product is able to interrupt host cell invasion by sporozoites. The outer membrane of the sporozoite contains lipid rafts and a protein, flotillin-1, was identified in sporozoites of E. tenella at the apex of the cell, a region that mediates cell invasion. Monensin was found to disrupt the localization of flotillin-1 within raft structures, resulting in the loss of ability to invade host cells.
Ionophores have generally been found to be safe in target animals receiving an approved dosage.

Coccicare @Importance of Curcumin extract – One of the natural compounds is curcumin, the extract from herbal plant Curcuma longa, known for its antioxidant and antimicrobial properties which may be effective in reducing coccidia infection in poultry. The effects of different doses of curcumin compound on growth performance, antioxidant status, and gut health of broiler chickens challenged with Eimeria species. “Curcumin addition in diet of laying hens under cold stress has antioxidant and antimicrobial effects and improves bird health and egg quality”.

We recommend to use ‘Coccicare’ for prevention of Coccidiosis in your flocks and have peace of mind to reduce your economical losses due to coccidiosis.
