The present study was carried out to evaluate the effect of ethanolic extract of Allium sativum (Alliceae) on immobilization stress induced albino rats. The effect was assessed by estimation of various biochemical parameters like glucose, cholesterol, triglycerides and blood urea nitrogen (BUN), and by determining the weight of organ such as, liver, spleen, testes, adrenal gland, blood cell count (WBC) and also the differential count at a dose of 200mg/kg body weight per oral. The extract showed significant (p<0.001) decrease in blood glucose, cholesterol, triglyceride and BUN and also decreased the weight of organs. It also showed a significant (p<0.05) decrease in weight of adrenal gland. A significant (p<0.01) decrease in WBC count, polymorphs and monocytes and decrease in lymphocytes (p<0.05) and eosinophils was observed, compared to control group. Thus the obtained results revealed that the Allium sativum has got a significant anti stress activity.
