Nigella sativa (black seed) oil based diet on the management of Trypanosoma brucei infected rats was investigated. Prasitaemia was monitored and haematological and enzymatic studies were carried out on liver and blood of infected rats fed with diet formulated with black seed oil (treatment). Comparison was made with untreated infected rats and uninfected rats. The diet formulated with black seed oil extended the life span for 7 and 5 days for prophylactic and early stage feeding, respectively while the late stage feeding extended it by a day. The T. brucei-infection significantly (p
