ABSTRACT
This study was carried out to evaluate the protective effect of Ocimum sanctum (tulsi) on lead-induced alteration in disposition kinetics of sulphadimidine (SD) in cockerels. Twenty-one, four-week male white leghorn (WLH) chicks were randomly divided into groups I, II and III (7 in each) and were fed at dietary with 0 ppm lead and no tulsi (group I, Control), 100 ppm lead (group II), or 100 ppm lead + 100 ppm tulsi (group III). After four weeks, disposition kinetics of intravenous single dose administration of SD (50 mg /kg) was determined in each bird. The mean values of elimination half-life, distribution–half, AUC, and volume of distribution were significantly (p
