  1. Single intramuscular glycerol injection significantly increase the level of serum calcium, magnesium, potassium, phosphorus and lowered the level of sodium, whereas quinacrine treatment attenuate this alteration in serum electrolytes. Data expressed as mean ± SE. # P < 0.05, ## P < 0.01and ### P < 0.001 as compare with control group. *P < 0.05, **P < 0.01 and *** P < 0.001 as compare to glycerol treated group
