Serum samples were collected at 14, 28 and 42nd day of experiment, whereas, liver and kidney tissues were obtained from broilers slaughtered at 42nd day of experiment. The highest OTA levels were detected in serum, livers and kidneys of OTA treated groups without supplementation of toxin deactivator (groups D and G) at day 42 of experiment, while the residues were significantly (P   kidneys >  liver
