Abstract

Toxic effect of Carica papaya check for this species in other resources bark on body weight, haematology and some biochemical parameters was investigated. Two-five out of thirty-five male albino rats allocated to five groups were sacrificed for the analysis. One group served as the control and the rest were test groups. The control group was placed on pelletized rat feed while that of the test groups were compounded feed of pelletized rat feed and ground sample of C. papaya bark. The rats were placed on tap water while the feed administration lasted. Results obtained showed that % average weight change, haematological and some biochemical parameters were significantly (p<0.05) affected in test rats against those of the control. This study has shown the toxic effect of C. papaya bark on body weight, haematology and some biochemical parameters
