|Title:||Haematinic effect of Hygrophila spinosa T.Anderson on experimental rodents|
|Abstract:||Ethanolic extract of the aerial parts of H spinosa a semiwoody herb was examined on male albino rats for certain haematological changes. The extract (100 & 200 mg/kg, po) significantly increased the haemoglobin, haematocrit, RBC and total WBC, as compared with vehicle treated control rat haemogram. In anemic male albino rats, the extract significantly increased haemoglobin, haematocrit and RBC count. Serum iron and serum total iron binding capacity were significantly decreased in H.spinosa extract treated anemic rats as compared with those in the vehicle treated anemic control rats. These findings demonstrated the haematinic effect of H. spinosa extract on experimental animals.|
