    Liver fluke is one of the important causes of loss in carcass weight

    Damage to liver causes loss in the value of carcass, besides death in many cases

    Different stages of infection

    The serum biochemical traits were analyzed using Humastar-300
    Serum alkaline phosphatase (ALKP),
    Serum aspartateaminotransferase (AST),
    Serum aniline amino transferase, (ALT)
    Serum cholesterol( CH),
    Serum creatinine (CREA),
    Serum total protein (TP)
    and
    Serum triglycerides (TRI)

    Hematological traits were analyzed using Abbott CELL-DYN 1800
    White blood corpuscles (WBC),
    Red blood corpuscles (RBC),
    Lymphocytes (LYM),Total cell count (MID),
    Granulocytes, (GRAN) ,Hemoglobin ( Hb),
    Hematocrit (HCT),Mean corpuscular volume (MCV),
    Mean corpuscular hemoglobin (MCH)
    and
    Mean corpuscular hemoglobin concentration (MCHC).

    Commercialization of Livestock Agriculture in Africa:
    Challenges and opportunities October 25-28, 2010.
    Results and Conclusion
    • Significant differences (P≤0.05)were observed in Serum Alkaline phosphatase ( ALKP) , serum aspartateaminotransferase (AST) and cholesterol( CH) levels of the infected and non infected sheep.
    • 13. There were differences in values of all the other parameters, both hematological and serum biochemical parameters, though not significant.
    • 14. It can thus be concluded that ALKP, AST and CH levels can indicate tehe extent of hepatic damage due to Faciola sp. in sheep
