Abstract

Due to the ease of absorption, accumulation in tissues, and extremely long biological half-life in the body, cadmium is considered one of the most hazardous heavy metals. The aim of the study was to investigate the effect of in ovo injection of cadmium on chicken embryo heart. A total of 160 chicken hatching eggs were used in the study. On day 4 of incubation, eggs from the experimental groups were injected with cadmium at a dose of 1 and 5 μg/egg and the incubation was prolonged to 21 day until hatching. Cadmium was found to slow the heart rate and reduce heart weight. In embryos exposed to 5 μg of cadmium, the histological analysis and aminotransferases concentration confirmed the occurrence of inflammatory processes in the heart muscle.
