N Mishra, V L Tandon.

Cited by (2)

Treatment of mice with crude extract of Hibiscus rosa sinensis flowers (500 mg/kg BW) and Bougainvillea spectabilis leaves (800 mg/kg BW) for a period of 30 days indicates a significant increase in the level of hemoglobin and count of RBC but a significant decline in the level of MCH and MCV in the former case. On the other hand, in B. spectabilis treated animals, the level of hemoglobin, RBC count & PCV declined significantly. Hence, it is concluded that the use of H. rosa sinensis whereas may not cause any adverse effect on animals, B. spectabilis is to be used with care as its chronic use may cause anemia.

Key words: Crude extract, H. rosa sinensis, B. spectabilis, hemoglobin, MCH, MCV, PCV
