  One hundred and twenty grass carp, Ctenopharyngadon idella, were examined over a period of one year from March 1998 to February 1999 at Government Fish Hatchery, Mian Channu, Punjab, Pakistan. Four species of copepod ectoparasites recovered were Lernaea (L.) polymorpha (Yu, 1938), L. cyprinacea (Linnaeus, 1761), L. lophiara (Harding, 1950) and L. ctenopharyngodonis. The parasitic infestation was low during the summer months when temperature ranged between 30-32°C and highest in winter months when temperature was between 13-23°C.

  The present study has been carried out to determine the effects of Nigella saitva on the lipid profile in cardiac patients visited at Ch. Pervaiz Elahi Institute of Cardiology, Multan. The age of the subjects was 26-69 years. The eighty subjects were divided into two groups (interventional and non-interventional) through random stratification (n = 40/group) by weight. The interventional group given Nigella sativa and statin, non-interventional group given statin daily. Both groups were advised to take the recomended doses regularly for a period of six months and the patients were on usual care. Fasting blood samples were taken before and after two and six month’s treatment. In interventional group, cholesterol decreased by (-14.58%), LDL (-23.00%), VLDL (-15.16%) and triglycerides (-15.16%) significantly (p<0.05) after the treatment, whereas there was significant increase (p<0.05) in HDL cholesterol (3.18%) after six months. In non-interventional group the cholesterol decreased by (+1.17%), LDL (-4.13%), VLDL (-3.10%) and triglycerides (-2.12%) non significantly (p>0.05) after the treatment, whereas there was significant increase (p<0.05) in HDL (+5.87) after six months. In conclusion, the Nigella sativa is effective to change the lipid profile significantly in a way which is beneficial to heart.
