Table 1 Distribution of the sexes of the pigs that received, during 18 days, blank feed (control group), feed contaminated with 15 μg T-2 toxin per kg feed (15 ppb group) or feed contaminated with 83 μg T-2 toxin per kg feed (83 ppb group), their respective weight at the beginning of the experiment and their average weight gain.

From: T-2 toxin induced Salmonella Typhimurium intoxication results in decreased Salmonella numbers in the cecum contents of pigs, despite marked effects on Salmonella-host cell interactions
