In vitro and in vivo anthelmintic activity of crude extracts of Coriandrum sativum against Haemonchus contortus.
The hydro-alcoholic extract showed better in vitro activity against adult parasites than the aqueous one, and treatment with both doses of Coriandrum sativum did not help the animals improve or maintain their PCV while those treated with albendazole showed significant increase in PCV. Expand
Screening of some medicinal plants of Ethiopia for their anti-microbial properties and chemical profiles.
The results indicated that 44 different plant species exhibited activity against one or more of the bacteria while one species, viz., Albizzia gummifera showed activity against all the 10 bacteria at different gradient of dilution. Expand
Haemonchus contortus: in vitro and in vivo anthelmintic activity of aqueous and hydro-alcoholic extracts of Hedera helix.
The overall findings of the current study indicated that H. helix has a potential anthelmintic benefit and further in vitro and in vivo evaluation of the different parts and fractions is needed to make use of this plant for therapeutic purposes. Expand
Antidiabetic activities of aqueous ethanol and n-butanol fraction of Moringa stenopetala leaves in streptozotocin-induced diabetic rats
Findings revealed that both the aqueous ethanol and n-butanol extracts of Moringa stenopetala leaves possess antihyperglycemic and antihyperlipidemic properties, and alleviate STZ-induced pancreatic damage in diabetic rats. Expand
In vivo anti-malarial activity of hydroalcoholic extracts from Asparagus africanus Lam. in mice infected with Plasmodium berghei
The in vivo antiplasmodial activity of extracts of the roots and area parts from traditionally used medicinal plant, named Asparagus africanus (Liliaceae), could partly confirm the claim in Ethiopian traditional medicine that the plant has therapeutic values in human malaria. Expand
Intestinal α-glucosidase and some pancreatic enzymes inhibitory effect of hydroalcholic extract of Moringa stenopetala leaves
The result demonstrated the beneficial biochemical effects of Moringa stenopetala by inhibiting intestinal α-glucosidase, pancreatic cholesterol esterase and pancreatic lipase activities and finding out the relevance of the plant in controlling blood sugar and lipid levels. Expand
Triterpenoid saponins and sapogenin lactones from Albizia gummifera.
The structures of two new monodesmosidic and bisdesmosidic triterpenoid saponins (1 and 2) and the known compound delta 5-stigmasterol-3-O-beta-D-glucopyranoside (3) as well as two new oleanane typeExpand
Effect of Achyranthes aspera L. on fetal abortion, uterine and pituitary weights, serum lipids and hormones.
The methanolic leaves extract of Achyranthes aspera possesses anti-fertility activity, which might be exploited to prevent unwanted pregnancy and control the ever-increasing population explosion. Expand
Khat chewing habit as a possible risk behaviour for HIV infection: A case-control study
Investigating whether or not the use of this psychostimulant alone or in conjunction with other behaviors associated with its use constitutes a risk behavior that accelerates the spread of HIV infection found that khat chewing is a risk behaviors for HIV infection. Expand
