Abstract

EFFECT OF ROOT OF ECLIPTA ALBA ON BIOCHEMICAL PARAMETERS OF CLARIAS BATRACHUS

Mishra Preeti* and Gupta Seema

ABSTRACT

The aim of the current study was to assess the effect of aqueous/ethanolic root extracts of Eclipta alba on biochemical variables (total serum protein, albumin, globulin and A/G ratio) of Clarias batrachus. Fishes of average weight (70-80 g) were randomly divided in three groups (n=20) control and treated with 10 and 20 ppm of root extracts (aqueous/ethanolic) up to 28 days. Serum was collected on first, second, third and fourth week after treatment. ANOVA shows a significant effect of treatment (p<0.01) on all variables except albumin treated with ethanolic extract. Significant increase in treated groups was observed in total serum protein, albumin and globulin at almost all sampling points. Decreasing trend was noticed in A/G ratio in both the extracts treated group at each sampling point. The results suggested that the root extracts of E. alba may help in the activation of the immune system and may be beneficial in aquaculture used as a natural immunostimulant.

Keywords: Clarias batrachus, Eclipta alba root, extracts, biochemical parameters.
