Gu Baiqung Duan Dexian Cui Zhonglin Cao Guangrong(Department of Veterinary Medicine)
Oxytropic kansuensis was given to eight goats at a dosage of lOg/kg per day via Rurnan Fistula.After the 20th day, the goats appeared to have toxic symptoms similar to natural poisoning cases in succession. Activates for serum AKP, GOT, CPK, ARG, LDH and BUN values inth epoisoned goats increased significantlyd, and so did the oligosa ccharide and mannose rich oligosaccharide in urine.Serum a-mannosidase activity and the percentage of lymphocytes forming erythrocyte rostte decreased greatly while the activates for CSF-LDH, CSF-GOT and CSF-CPK increased apparently. These results proved that oytropis kansuensis might damage brain, liver, kindnery, hear and other viscera in goat and also lower the cell immune functions of body cells, and that the toxin can be indolizidine alkaloid.
