Acute and chronic toxicity of diclofenac drug and its effect on haematological parameters in the fresh water fish, Cirrhinus mrigala


Priyadarsini V, Binukumari S, Vasanthi J

Fishes belonging tornthe species Cirrhinus mrigala were exposed to 2.8 per cent concentrationrnof Diclofenac drug for 24, 48, 72, 96 hours and 10 days, 20 days and 30 daysrnrespectively. Bioassay studies were conducted to calculate 50 per centrnmortality of Cirrhinus mrigala in 96 hour by exposing to differentrnconcentrations of Diclofenac drug. Blood was punctured from the gill andrnanalysed for haematological parameters. Except WBC all the parameters like RBC,rnHb, MCV, MCH and PCV was found to be decreased.
