A Preliminary Assessment of Cucurbita Maxima Leaves from Cameroon on Haematological Parameters in Albino Rats

Anemia is one of a wide spread public health problem in the world especially amongst the elderly and children. WHO estimates the number of anemia people worldwide to be a staggering 3.5 billion in the developing countries and that approximately 50% of all anemia can be attributed to iron deficiency. The global distribution of the disease burden of Iron deficiency anemia is heavily concentrated in Africa and WHO Regional Southeast Asia-D. These regions bear 71% of the global mortality burden and 65% of the disability-adjusted life years lost [1]. The most highly affected population groups in developing countries are pregnant women (56%), school age children (53%), non-pregnant women (44%), and preschool children (42%). However, another group that requires attention as well: older children, half of whom are anemic (51%). In industrialized countries, the most affected groups are pregnant women (18%) and preschool children (17%), followed by non pregnant women and older adults, both at 12%. A percentage of the population shows that such conditions as anemia, thrombocytopenia, leucopenia and low blood cell indices values are due to malnutrition. These conditions are most often seen in children especially those in rural areas [2].
