    The rapid growth of modern broilers is associated with enhanced appetite and high metabolic rate and, consequently, high O2 demand. Ascites syndrome (AS) develops in individuals that fail to fully supply the increasing demand for O2 in their bodies under ascites-inducing conditions (AIC) such as...
