Abstract:
Background and Objectives: This study evaluated the haematological effects of palm kernel oil, olive oil, crude oil and honey in male albino rats. The chemical substances are commonly used as antidote for poisons. Materials and Methods: Thirty healthy male albino rats were used in this study. They were randomly placed into five groups of six animals each and were administered the corresponding chemical substances for 21 days. They were sacrificed and blood sample collected for haematological analysis. The haematological analysis was carried out using Abacus 380. Results: The WBC increased significantly (p<0.05) in all the test groups compared to the control. The RBC, Hb, HCT and MCHC increased non-significantly (p>0.05) in all the test groups compared to the control. The MCV and MCH reduced non-significantly (p>0.05) in groups 2 and 3 and significantly (p<0.05) in group 4, but increased non-significantly (p>0.05) in group 5 compared to the control. The RDWc reduced non-significantly (p>0.05) in groups 2 and 3, but increased non-significantly (p>0.05) in groups 4 and 5 compared to the control. The PLT, MPV and PDWc increased non-significantly (p>0.05) in all the test groups compared to the control. PCT increased non-significantly (p>0.05) in groups 2, 3 and 4, but increased significantly (p<0.05) in group 5 compared to the control. Conclusion: This study showed that administration of palm kernel oil, olive oil, crude oil and honey supports the synthesis of haemoglobin, PCV, platelets and RBC, but also showed evidence of toxicity as indicated by increased WBC count.
