    ABSTRACT: The aim of this study is to compare the effects of single and combined oral administration of fresh aqueous extracts of Acalypha wilkesiana supplementation at 300 mg/ml and exercise training on some immuno indicator parameters in Rats. The study was carried out in the College of Health Sciences, Department of Hematology, Igbinedion University, Okada between the Month of June and July, 2012. Following 30 days post-oral administration of extracts on (Group 2 and Group 3), exercise training on (Group 2 and Group 4) and No treated on Group 1, hematological parameters were determined using the sysmex®Automated Hematological Analyzer, while CD4 and CD8 cells were estimated using Partec cyflow counter and serum IgG is determined using the ELISA Method. CD4 cells, CD8, and Total WBC count show a statistically significant increase while Hb concentration and IgG level show a statistically significant decrease in Group 2 and Group 4 (P 0.05), Table 2. Acalypha wilkesiana at a concentration of 300 mg/g/day seems to be immuno-protective in Rats. Single or combine effects of prolonged exercise and A. wilkesiana produce significant change in some immuno indicators parameters. However, the molecular mechanism behind their combined effect would require further investigation.
