Abstract: Necrotic enteritis (NE) in broilers is caused by Clostridium perfringens. The disease may result in significant economic loss and is currently controlled in Australia by feeding low doses of antibiotic growth promotors (AGP). Alternatives to AGP have been sought since the EU ban of AGP use in livestock. The phytogenic feed additive (Sangrovit® Extra) based on quaternary benzophenanthridine and protopine alkaloids (QBA+PA) shows potential as an AGP alternative that has been reported to be anti-inflammatory, anti-microbial and immunomodulating (Khadem et al., 2014).
