  1. Means in the same row with no superscripts or with a common superscript letter do not differ significantly (P < 0.05). Data are presented with the mean ± standard deviation (for six replicates of one chick per cage). NC = basal diet without supplementation; SNE = necrotic enteritis experimental model group; BS15 = basal diet with 1.0 × 106 cfu BS15/g diet as feed
  2. AST aspartate aminotransferase, ALT alanine aminotransferase, TG triglycerides, TC total cholesterol, HDL-C high-density lipoprotein cholesterol, LDL-C low-density lipoprotein cholesterol
