The Present study was undertaken to evaluate the therapeutic efficiency of curcumin in terms of normalization of altered serum lipid profile in liver rats exposed to lindane. Liindane (30mg/kg bw) exposure significantly (p<0.001) increase the level of cholesterol (CHO), Triglycerides (TG), very low density lipoprotein (VLDL), low density lipoproteins (LDL) and significantly (p<0.001) decreased High density lipoprotein (HDL)as compared to control. Pre, post-treatment, combination with curcumin (100mg/kg bw) ameliorated CHO, TG, VLDL, LDL level after lindane exposure. However, there was no change in HDL level in IV, V, VI as compared to exposed group. All parameters were metabolized after 14 days exposure to lindane except HDL.
The genus Krimi was established by Burt in 1944 with its type species K. chrysocolaptis,from Chrysocolaptis guttacristatus stricklandi,in Ceylon. Nine specimens of Cestode parasites were collected from the intestine of Gallus gallus domesticus. The present cestode have 55-60 number of strobilla; scolex large, rectangular in shape;rostellar sac large, extends up to the middle of the scolex; 18rostellarhooks; testes 25 to 30in numbers; cirrus pouch medium, oval; ovary is bilobed,each lobe with 7-8 acini;ootype small, oval; gravid proglottids large, broaderthan long.
