The present study was based on assessments of the antiparasitic activities to determine the efficacies of acetone, chloroform, ethyl acetate, hexane, and methanol dried leaf, flower, and seed extracts of Achyranthes aspera L., Anisomeles malabarica (L.) R. Br., Gloriosa superba L., Psidium guajava L., Ricinus communis L., and Solanum trilobatum L. tested(More)
The dog tapeworm Echinococcusgranulosus is the causative agent of cystic hydatid disease in domestic/wild herbivores animals and man. Accurate immunodiagnosis of the infection requires highly specific and sensitive antigens. The aim of this study was to develop and evaluate immunoassays with principles of precipitation, agglutination for the identification(More)
Cystic echinococcosis is caused by the larval stage of the dog tapeworm, Echinococcus granulosus. The disease is recognized as one of the world's major zoonoses affecting human beings and domestic animals apart from its economic and public health importance. Development of the cysts in the intermediate host such as buffaloes occurs in the lungs, liver and(More)
A study was undertaken to assess the sensitivity and specificity of Counter Immunoelectrophoresis (CIE) in the diagnosis of hydatidosis in buffaloes using sera samples collected at the time of slaughter. One hundred sera samples from buffaloes were screened for hydatidosis using fertile buffalo hydatid cyst fluid as antigen by CIE. Out of the 100 sera(More)
