原始语种摘要: Background : Artemisia afra is a plant traditionally used for treatment of different diseases in many parts of the world including Ethiopia. Its effects on different organs, however, have not yet been investigated. The objective of the present study was, therefore, to evaluate the acute and sub-chronic toxic effects of aqueous leaf extracts of Artemisia afra on Liver, Kidney and some Blood parameters in Rats. Methods : For acute toxicity study, aqueous extracts of the leaves were administered in a single dose of 200, 700, 1200, 2200, 3200, 4200 and 5000mg/kg body weight, while the low dose (600mg/kg) and triple of lower dose (1800mg/kg) were used for sub-chronic toxicity studies. Selected hematological and biochemical parameters of the blood followed by histopathological analysis were...
