Biochemical studies in dogs affected with microfilaria of D. Yepens revealed a marked increase in serum total protein and globulin values. The albumin and albumin :globulin ratio was greater in uninfected dogs. There was significant increase in AST and ALT and serum urea values in microfilariasis but increase in BLJN was marginal.
