The present study was an attempt to elucidate the effect of non-lethal arsenic (As) exposure (1/10 LC50) on different immunologically important organs and cells of a catfish. Clarias batrachus L. were exposed to arsenic trioxide for different time intervals, which resulted in significant, time-dependent changes in total head kidney and splenic leucocyte count (p<0.05) and reduction in the organosomatic indices (p<0.05) of these two important immunocompetent organs. Routine histological studies… CONTINUE READING
