Endosulfan is a man made insecticide which is highly controversial agrochemical due to its acute toxicity potential for bioaccumulation but still used in large scale in India even though it is being phased out globally. Endosulfan plays a great role in alteration of Hematological status of human beings. The present study was carried out to investigate the acute effects of endosulfan on Hematological parameters such as Erythrocyte count (RBC), Leucocyte count (WBC), percent Hemoglobin (Hb%), Packed cell volume (PCV%) and Mean Corpuscular Volume (MCV) on swiss albino mice. Adult male mice was segregated into four groups, each group with 6 animals. Group I, served as the control was administered with distilled water @0.1 ml/10gb.w; Group II, received endosulfan @3mg/kg b.w; Group III, concomitantly received Phyllanthus emblica; Group IV, concomitantly received Withania somnifera (Ashwagandha) 150 mg/kg b.w along with endosulfan through oral gavaging. All the treatments were continued for 3 months. The toxic effects observed upon endosulfan treatment include Erythrocyte count (RBC) gradually decreased, Leucocyte count (WBC) increased, percent Hemoglobin (Hb%) significantly decreased, Packed cell volume (PCV%) reduced significantly and Mean Corpuscular Volume (MCV) significantly increased. On contrast, treatment of extract of Phyllanthus emblica and Withania somnifera was found to alleviate the toxic consequences of endosulfan, thereby producing ameliorative effect.
