- Antioxidant supplementation and subsequent oxidative stress of horses during an 80-km endurance raceC A Williams
Department of Animal Science, Rutgers The State University of New Jersey, Cook College, New Brunswick 08901, USA
J Anim Sci 82:588-94. 2004..001). Positive correlations were found for plasma lipid hydroperoxides on CK (r = 0.25; P = 0.001) and AST (r = 0.33; P < 0.001). These results establish an association between muscle leakage and a cumulative index of oxidative stress...
- Antioxidant status in elite three-day event horses during competitionCarey A Williams
Department of Animal Sciences, Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey, New Brunswick, NJ 08901, USA
Oxid Med Cell Longev 2012:572090. 2012..The changes in antioxidant and muscle enzymes observed between divisions are likely due to the increased anaerobic and musculoskeletal demand on the upper level horses and the fitness required to compete at that level...
- Nutrient intake during an elite level three-day event competition is correlated to inflammatory markers and antioxidant statusC A Williams
Department of Animal Science, Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey, New Jersey, USA
Equine Vet J 42:116-22. 2010..Dietary intake and feeding management practices could affect the degree of physiological stress and subsequent performance of high level 3-day event horses...
- Some commonly fed herbs and other functional foods in equine nutrition: a reviewCarey A Williams
Department of Animal Sciences, Equine Science Center, Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey, School of Environmental and Biological Sciences, New Brunswick, NJ 08901, USA
Vet J 178:21-31. 2008..Horses fed garlic at >0.2g/kg per day developed Heinz body anaemia. Drug-herb interactions are common and caution needs to be taken when implementing 'natural product' usage...
- Apoptosis and antioxidant status are influenced by age and exercise training in horsesC A Williams
Department of Animal Science, Equine Science Center, Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey, New Brunswick 08901, USA
J Anim Sci 86:576-83. 2008..The greater level of white blood cell apoptosis also indicates that older horses may be immune-compromised during exercise. However, research still needs to be performed regarding dietary supplementation in the aged horse...
- Biomarkers of antioxidant status, inflammation, and cartilage metabolism are affected by acute intense exercise but not superoxide dismutase supplementation in horsesEmily D Lamprecht
Department of Animal Sciences, Rutgers the State University, New Brunswick, NJ 08901 8525, USA Emily
Oxid Med Cell Longev 2012:920932. 2012..No treatment effects were detected. Results suggest normal adaptive responses likely due to exercise-induced tissue microdamage and oxidative stress. Additional research is needed to identify benefit(s) of SOD supplementation in horses...

- Temporal folate status during lactation in mares and growth in foalsAmy L Ordakowski-Burk
Department of Animal and Avian Sciences, University of Maryland, College Park, MD 20742, USA
Am J Vet Res 66:1214-21. 2005..CONCLUSIONS AND CLINICAL RELEVANCE: Folate status was not impaired in lactating mares and growing foals under the conditions in our study. It appears that folate supplementation is not necessary...
- Lipoic acid as an antioxidant in mature thoroughbred geldings: a preliminary studyCarey A Williams
Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University, Blacksburg, VA, USA
J Nutr 132:1628S-31S. 2002..013). The results show that 10 mg/kg LA had no evident adverse effects, and moderately reduced the oxidative stress of horses allowed light activity. These findings encourage studying of LA in horses subjected to strenuous exercise...
- Effects of oral potassium supplementation on acid-base status and plasma ion concentrations of horses during endurance exerciseTanja M Hess
Department of Animal and Poultry Science, College of Agricultural and Life Sciences, Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University, Blacksburg, VA 24061, USA
Am J Vet Res 66:466-73. 2005..CONCLUSIONS AND CLINICAL RELEVANCE: Increases in plasma H+ and K+ concentrations in this endurance ride were moderate and unlikely to contribute to signs of muscle fatigue and hyperexcitability in horses...
