|Abstract: ||The effect of subchronic administration of ethanolic stembark extract
of Mammea Africana (30 - 90mg/kg) on haematological and
biochemical parameters of rats was studied. Significant decreases in
activities of serum alkaline phosphatase (ALP), Aspartate
aminotransferase (AST) and Alanine aminotransferase (ALT) as well as
decreases in the levels of serum total protein and albumin were
observed in the extract treated rats compared to control. White Blood
Cell counts of the extract treated rats also decreased significantly
while other haematogical parameters were unaffected. Thus, the extract
has a slight toxicity at the doses studied.|
