  • The aim of the study was to assess the effects of the anthelminthic, praziquantel, on the haematological and biochemical indices of the blood of common carp
  • Fish were divided into six groups: two groups received 30 mg kg−1 body weight of praziquantel, and two groups were given 50 mg kg−1 bw of praziquantel mixed into the heat-treated amyloid vehicle
  • Praziquantel treatment was characterised by a significantly lower erythrocyte count, haemoglobin level, packed cell volume and total protein at both dose levels after 24 h compared with the controls, but these parameters were similar to the control values at 96 h
