Abstract

This research work was conducted at animal laboratory in the Department of Physiology and Pharmacology, Hajee Mohammad Danesh Science & Technology University, Dinajpur for a period of 45 days . The experiment was undertaken to investigate the effect of wheat grass on hemato-biochemical parameters and body weight in rabbit. Twenty rabbits  age between 3-4 months  and weighing about 1200-1500 gm were acclimatized for 2 weeks and then randomly assigned into four groups (T0, T1, T2 and T3) and 5 rabbits in each group. Group T0 was kept for control group and chopped wheat grass supplementation was given to the group T1, T2 and T3 at the dose rate of 3 gm, 5 gm, 7 gm/kg body weight respectively for 45 days.  On  day 15, 30, 45 blood samples were collected and analyzed for hemoglobin, PCV, RBC, TLC, DLC, SGOT, SGPT and body weight from 0-45 days were calculated and statistically analysed. There was significant (P>0.05) increased in hemoglobin concentration, PCV, RBC, TLC, DLC count  in the group receiving wheat grass compare to control group and highest value was found in group T2 but statistically not significant (P<0.05). There was significant (P<0.05) decrease in ESR, SGPT, SGOT level in all  treated group compare to  control and lowest value was found in group T2 but statistically not significant (P<0.05). In this research wheat grass did not produce any significant (P<0.05)  effect on body weight of rabbit . The  results of this study reveals that oral administration of wheat grass @ 5 gm/kg body weight (Group T2) may be good for building blood, for adjuvant therapy in anemia treatment, immunostimulatory effect and health improving adjuvant in liver disorders.
