Abstract

A study was undertaken to find the correlation between cadmium concentrations in
serum and serum biochemical parameters in cattle. Area around fertilizers and chemicals
travancore (FACT), Indian Aluminum Company (INDAL), Binani Zinc and Hindustan
Insecticide limited of Eloor industrial area were selected for the study. The cadmium
levels in the serum estimated by atomic absorption spectrophotometer. The serum
cadmium levels are significantly higher in Binanipuram and Eloor north. Parameters
like BUN, creatinine, albumen, globulin, total protein estimated using the blood
anlyser.The BUN levels and creatinine found to increase in test areas than control. A
significant decrease in the total protein, albumin, and globulin noted in Binanaipuram,
Alupuram and Eloor north and a decrease in the globulin, albumin and total protein
than controls noted in Eloor south.
