Poisoning by plants, mycotoxins and related toxins.

Book cover for Poisoning by plants, mycotoxins and related toxins.

Description

This book contains 124 chapters focusing on the various poisonous plants and mycotoxins and their effects on livestock. The effects of the chemical constituents of these poisonous plants and mycotoxins on the liver, reproductive, nervous and other organ systems of laboratory and farm animals are discussed and the different methods used in assessing the chemical compounds associated with poisoning,...

Chapter 41 (Page no: 270)

Evaluation of the abortifacient effect of Luffa acutangula Roxb. in rats.

This chapter presents the results of a study conducted to investigate the abortifacient effect of L. acutangula tea in rats. Eleven pregnant Wistar female rats were used for the experiment. On the 15th day of gestation, 6 rats were dosed by gavage with the infusion of L. acutangula at 10 ml/kg body weight and the other 5 rats were dosed with 10 ml saline solution/kg body weight. On the 21st day of gestation, all the rats were submitted to Cesarean section. The number of implantation sites on the uterine horns, live and dead fetuses, corpora lutea, and number of fetal resorptions were recorded. Fetuses and placentas were weighed individually and the fetuses were evaluated carefully for the presence of gross malformations. The ingestion of L. acutangula during pregnancy may inhibit normal development in exposed rat pups as shown by reduced fetal weight and the occurrence of a single cleft palate.
