Table 4 Effects of ethanol fruit extract of H. madagascariensis on hematological parameters in wistar rats. (Mean ± S.E.M). There was no statistically significant (P > 0.05) difference in the red blood cell count, packed cell volume, hemoglobin concentration and white blood cell count values of the extract treated groups when compared to the control. However, there was a marginal decrease in the white blood cell count of the treated groups compared to the control
