Three groups of ten rats in growth fed with three diets differing only in the amount of dried maggots meal(DMM): 2.5%, 5% and 7.5%: DMM2.5, DMM5and DMM7.5. Assay of plasma biochemical parameters of all the rats did not detect diseases or physiological abnormalities. However, biometrics kidneys and livers of rats showed changes. The kidneys of rats decreased weight of 4.00%, 1.30% and 2.70% respectively in diets DMM2.5, DMM5and DMM7.5. As for the liver, their weight increased by 1.10%, 3.00% and 12.40% respectively with diets DMM2.5, DMM5and DMM7.5. These observations may reflect histopathological abnormalities of the kidneys and livers of rats that are to detect.
