D. MUBEEN SULTANA, AND NAUSHEEN DAWOOD

Abstract

Chromium, though a nonessential element in our diet has been found to possess carcinogenic effects. Since Cr(VI) is considered more toxic than the naturally occurring Cr(III), potassium chromate was chosen for this study. The short term immunological effects of injecting potassium chromate, human A antigen and trinity root extract both singly and in different combinations in rabbits (Oryctolagus cunniculus) were studied and compared with normal controls. Heamagglutination profiles, Total WBC counts and Differential WBC counts were found to fluctuate in all groups of animals. The study also proves the immune boosting action of trinity roots.
