Abstract

The present experiment was carried out to investigate the efficacy of haemopoietic potency of
indigenous plants namely Astercantha longifolis nees (Kuliakhara) and Ipomoea reptans (Kalmi) in
32 male albino rabbits divided into four groups including control from 6th to 14th week of age. The
results of haematological parameters indicated that TEC and Hb values were highly significant
(P001) between experimental groups compared to control. PCV and MCV showed a significant
difference (P0.05) betwee the groups. Rest of the parameters studied i.e. TLC, DLC, MCHC and
MCH were found to be non-significant.
