Variability of vitamin E concentration in camel plasma

Faye B., Seboussi R.. 2009. Journal of Camel Practice and Research, 16 (2) : p. 157-161.

In the present study, variability of plasma a-tocopherol was reported in different groups of camels (non-lactating and non-pregnant, pregnant, lactating and their new-born, young, selenium intoxicated young camels). The mean values in the different groups were 1.13 ± 0.61 pg/ml (non-lactating and non pregnant),1.12 ± 0.81 pg/ml (pregnant),1.20 ± 0.80 pg/ml (lactating), 0.82 ± 1.06 pg/ml (new-born), 0.56 ± 0.22 pg/ml (young) and 0.68 ± 0.36 pg/ml (intoxicated young). There was no significant change in the time. Those values appeared lower than in plasma of other ruminants, but the effect of vitamin E supplementation was not known in camel. (Résumé d'auteur)
