Abstract: AlbiziaLebbeck stem bark extract have been reported to treat bronchial asthma. The effect of dried leaf on some haematologic variables and immune response were assessed in Wistar rats treated with sensitization and booster doses in their normal diet at 5g / 100 g body weight per day for twenty one days. Blood samples were taken and analysed for WBC, differential white cell count and serum electrophoresis.The dried leaf had no significant effect (p> 0.05) on WBC and differential cell counts; there was no abnormal gamma globulin band after electrophoresis compared to the control rats. The dried leaf of the AlbiziaLebbeck leaf did not elicit an immune response and is safe to be used in the treatment of asthma and other ailments.
