Abstract

The purpose of this research was to assess the impact of mosquito coil’s smoke on the hematological activities in albino rat (Rattus albus). Blood profile analysis help to detect diseases such as anemia, infections and inflammation etc. Blood is collected from albino rats treated with Mortein, Kingtox and Finis mosquito coils smoke 8 hours daily for 6 months. Forty-eight rats were equally distributed into four groups (A, B, C, and D). The blood was collected after one-month interval from each group for six months. Total erythrocytes, hemoglobin (Hb), packed cell volume (PCV) and leukocyte counts were determined in all the treated groups. Results disclosed that mosquito coils smoke of Mortein, Kingtox and Finis coils causes effect on the number of haemoglobin (Hb), red blood cells (RBCs), haematocrit (Hct), mean corpuscular volume (MCV), mean corpuscular haemoglobin (MCH), mean corpuscular haemoglobin concentration (MCHC), white blood cells (WBCs), and platelets (PLT) count as these parameters either increased or decreased during the experiment. The detected values of Hb, RBCs, Hct, WBCs and PLT during six months in all the treated groups of albino rats shows elevation than control group values and likewise the detected values for MCV, MCH and MCHC during six months showed decrease in group A, B and C than the untreated rats group.
