Abstract

HEMATINIC ACTIVITY OF ECLIPTA ALBA ON CLARIAS GARIEPINUS (BURCHELL) 1822

Mishra P.* and Gupta S.

ABSTRACT

The purpose of present study was to evaluate the effect of aqueous and ethanolic extracts of Eclipta alba stem on hematological indices of Clarias gariepinus. Experimental fishes of average weight 70-80g were randomly divided into three groups (n=20) and kept in cement tanks. The fishes of group I served as control received only vehicle, the remaining 2 groups (II & III) act as experimental groups, administered with the 10 and 20 ppm of aqueous and ethanolic extracts every alternate day for 28 days. Blood samples were collected on day 07, 14, 21 and 28 for hematological analysis. Positive alteration in the values of RBC, Hb, PCV and WBC were recorded with both the extracts at different sampling points, as compared to control. In red cell indices increasing trend in MCV and MCH while decreasing in MCHC was noticed after the exposure of the different doses of both the extracts. Increase in the level of RBC, PCV and MCV suggest that the stem extract is capable of stimulating erythropoiesis that could be useful as antianemic, for the treatment of anemia. Study suggested that E. alba may be used for the treatment of anemia in farmed fishes.

Keywords: Clarias gariepinus, E. alba, hematology.
