Abstract


The attempt was made to evaluate the effect of mosquito coil smoke on the development of chick embryo under laboratory conditions. It was reported earlier that the burning of coil causes problems in rats like inflammation of the tracheal epithelium, atelectasis of the lung parenchyma, emphysema and increase of alveolar macrophages in the alveolar space and perivascular infiltration of polymorph nuclear cells, which was studied by the Department of Anatomy and Department of Biology (BAPTIST College)-Hongkong. In the present endeavor we try to evaluate the effect of D-trans allethrin which is a component of in the mosquito coil. The compound has adverse effect on various stages of chick development. Microsomia and Tachycardia are the major deformities observed due to d-trans allethrin. The compound was found to induce certain structural anomalies in the developing embryo. The characteristic deformities during this study have been co-related with the results which we obtained from current investigation. In conclusion the mosquito coil smoke is embryo toxic. The continuous use of mosquito coil may lead to undesirable consequences in vertebrates. According to us the best option to get rid of mosquito bite is to use the mosquito net.
