Abstract: The effect of induced physical and oxidative stress on the white blood cells (WBC) of female Wistar rats was investigated. 40 matured female Wistar rats were divided into four groups (A.B.C.D) ten per group. Group A, control, Group B, mono enucleation, Group C, bilateral enucleation and Group D, alcohol treated. The total and differential white cell counts were evaluated over the six weeks period of the induced stress. The results revealed no difference in the average total and differential white cell counts of the mono and bilaterally enucleated groups. While the alcohol treated group showed increase especially in the total WBC, neutrophils and eosinophils compared to the control group (P-value <0.05).
