Abstract

The effect of different doses of zinc acetate (1,000 and 3,000 ppm) on several haematological values was studied on Wistar rats. Decreased haematocrit, mean corpuscular volume and white cell counts were appreciated, along with increased red cell counts. The leucocyte differential count was also modified, an important reduction of the percentage of neutrophils and monocytes being registered.
