Investigation of acute toxicity of Malathion and Cypermethrin on Clinico-hematological parameters in female New Zealand White Rabbits (Oryctolagus cuniculus)

  title={Investigation of acute toxicity of Malathion and Cypermethrin on Clinico-hematological parameters in female New Zealand White Rabbits (Oryctolagus cuniculus)},
  author={Mussarrat Shaheen and Ali Muhammad Yousafzai},
The aim of the present study was to find the clinical and hematological alterations in female rabbits exposed orally to Malathion and Cypermethrin at a dose of 75mg/kg body weight for seven days through gavage. Animals were divided into three groups i.e. A, B and C comprised of three rabbits each. Group A was considered as control. Group B was intoxicated with Malathion while C was Cypermethrin intoxicated group. All the animals were monitored twice a day for clinical signs. Signs like grinding… Expand

Figures and Tables from this paper


Effect of cypermethrin on clinico-haematological parameters in rabbits.
It was concluded that CY is not safe for animals in high doses because it affected the haematological parameters in dose dependent manner and indicated that rabbits were suffering from anaemia. Expand
Effects of six months' feeding of cypermethrin on the blood and liver of albino rats.
A cypermethrin-mixed diet was fed uninterrupted to male albino rats for six months to evaluate toxicity in nontarget organisms, suggesting liver and possibly pancreas malfunction. Expand
Cypermethrin induced anaemia in male rabbits.
It was concluded that macrocytic hypochromic anaemia was induced in the male rabbits due to CY treatment, but not in the females at the dose levels administered during the study. Expand
Changes in some hematological and biochemical indices of rabbits induced by isoflavones and cypermethrin.
Results demonstrated the beneficial influences of isoflavones in reducing the negative effects of cypermethrin on blood hematology and biochemical parameters of male rabbits. Expand
Cytogenetic effects of pesticides. III. Induction of micronuclei in mouse bone marrow by the insecticides cypermethrin and rotenone.
The different routes of treatment with cypermethrin and rotenone caused toxicity of marrow as indicated by a significant increase in the percentage of polychromatic erythrocytes (PEs) over that of the control. Expand
Influence of malathion pretreatment on the toxicity of anilofos in male rats: a biochemical interaction study.
Results of the study indicate that malathion pretreament may not essentially alter the anticholinesterase action of anilofos, but may enhance anil ofos-mediated oxidative damage to rat brain. Expand
Plasma and RBCs antioxidant status in occupational male pesticide sprayers.
The concentration of antioxidants such as glutathione (GSH), alpha-tocopherol, ascorbic acid and ceruloplasmin were significantly altered, and the activities of antioxidant enzymes were remarkably elevated in sprayer populations, when compared to controls. Expand
Pyrethroid insecticide-induced alterations in mammalian synaptic membrane potential.
Data indicate that type I and type II phenoxybenzyl pyrethroids act potently and stereoselectively on the voltage-sensitive sodium channel to increase sodium influx into synaptic terminals producing membrane depolarization and neurotransmitter release and show that pyrethroid-induced alterations in synaptosomal membrane potential is a sensitive measure ofpyrethroid action on the sodium channel and of pyrethoid toxicity.

It appears that the sodium channel and the GABA system merit continuing efforts for development of newer and better insecticides. Expand
