Gastrointestinal cestode parasites are the most pathogenic parasites present in animal, birds and fishes. Parasitic biochemical studies has great importance in understanding the complex association in host parasite relationship. Whereas, the evidence in parasitic biochemical studies is patchy. Gastrointestinal cestodes are the most pathogenic parasites in Columba livia intermidia are tropics and subtropics areas. Present study deals with the biochemical studies of Cotugnia mohekarae n.sp. present in Columba livia intermidia in respect with the protein, glycogen and lipids metabolism.
