  • The extensive use of pharmaceuticals in human and veterinary medicine may enter the aquatic environment and pose a serious threat to non-target aquatic organisms like fish
  • Indian major carp Cirrhinus mrigala was exposed to different concentrations of most commonly used pharmaceutical drugs clofibric acid and diclofenac to evaluate its impacts on certain enzymological parameters during short- and long-term exposures
  • A biphasic trend was observed in plasma GOT and GPT activity when compared to the control groups. In both short- and long-term exposure, a significant
  • The alterations of these enzymological parameters can be effectively used as potential biomarkers in monitoring of pharmaceutical toxicity in aquatic environment and organisms
