1. Ethanolic extract of Ferula jaeschkeana Vatke has been studied on vital organs of rats during early pregnancy so as to elucidate its metabolic effect on these organs. 2. Administration of the extract in a dose of 200 mg/kg for 5 days (day 1 to 5post-coitum) did not change protein contents of liver and spleen, however, that of the kidney were decreased and adrenal showed high contents. 3. It also caused depletion of glycogen contents in the kidney and adrenal at 5th day schedule, but in liver and spleen, glycogen contents remained unchanged. 4. Increase in the activity of acid phosphatase and decrease in that of alkaline phosphate has been observed in liver and kidney spleen and adrenal when compared with their respective controls.
