Muhammad Rakibul Hasan, Md. Kamrul Islam, Ziaul Haque.

Abstract
Moderate exposure to sunlight increases vitamin-D status in the body and vitamin-D helps in absorption of calcium from intestine.
This study was aimed to investigate the efficacy of vitamin-D and sunlight on blood parameters and serum biochemistry in
mice. For this purpose, 50 adult Swiss albino mice were collected and randomly divided into five equal groups (Group A, B, C,
D and E). Group A was considered as control and fed only on balanced normal feed. Group B was supplied with 15% butter in
feed as a semi-synthetic source of vitamin-D, group C was exposed to direct sunlight (1.5 hours daily) and group D and E were
supplied with oral synthetic form of vitamin-D @ 50 IU and 100 IU daily, respectively. After 120 days, blood and serum samples
were collected for analysis. Our results showed that total erythrocytes count (TEC) and total leukocytes count (TLC) were found
higher in group D but insignificant. Lymphocytes were significantly (P
