Oxidant and Antioxidants During the Transition Period in Dairy Cows
Keywords:Free radicals Oxidative stress Antioxidants Transition period
The transition from pregnancy to parturition is associated with metabolic and physiological changes. Oxidative stress is increased in late pregnancy and continue to be higher after parturition, which represent a challenge for the dairy cows to defend the increased free radicals by using the available antioxidants. This review discussed the process of free radical release, the development of oxidative stress and evaluation of the animal health during the transition period and threw the light on different methods used to assess oxidative stress and antioxidants therapy.
