The effects of tannin-rich plants on parasitic nematodes in ruminants.
TLDR
More research is required to understand better the mechanisms of action of plant-derived bioactive substances, and therefore make more pertinent use of these bioactive plants in livestock systems.
Direct anthelmintic effects of condensed tannins towards different gastrointestinal nematodes of sheep: in vitro and in vivo studies.
TLDR
The lowest intestinal worm burden was recovered from sheep drenched with 8% w/w Quebracho extract and the administration of Que bracho extract at 8% of food intake for 3 days did not affect FEC or worm burdens in sheep infected with the abomasal species compared to controls.
Use of plants in novel approaches for control of gastrointestinal helminths in livestock with emphasis on small ruminants.
TLDR
In vivo controlled studies have shown that plant remedies have in most instances resulted in reductions in the level of parasitism much lower than those observed with anthelmintic drugs, and it is essential to validate the anti-parasitic effects of plant products in relation to their potential anti-nutritional and other side effects.
Consequences of long-term feeding with condensed tannins on sheep parasitised with Trichostrongylus colubriformis.
TLDR
Evidence for a long-term effect of Quebracho extract, during both the initial establishment and on the established T. colubriformis population in sheep, was provided and it is suggested that the effect observed was a direct anthelmintic effect of the condensed tannins included in sheep diets.
Medicinal plants for helminth parasite control: facts and fiction.
TLDR
It is proposed that a holistic approach is required to evaluate the potential of medicinal plants in parasite control and maximise their benefits on parasitised hosts.
Ethno-medicinal study of plants used for treatment of human and livestock ailments by traditional healers in South Omo, Southern Ethiopia
TLDR
Traditional medicine, mainly involving the use of medicinal plants, is playing a significant role in meeting the primary healthcare needs of the three ethnic groups and will be used to support the country’s human and livestock health care system and improve lives and livelihoods.
The consequences of short-term grazing of bioactive forages on established adult and incoming larvae populations of Teladorsagia circumcincta in lambs.
TLDR
The view that chicory can be a promising candidate species in pasture management practices to control T. circumcincta burdens is supported, as it reduces larval establishment in all treatments.
Plant secondary metabolites: antiparasitic effects and their role in ruminant production systems
TLDR
The conclusion is that PSM can have antiparasitic properties, which depend on their structure, level of ingestion and availability within the gastrointestinal tract of the animal, and the potential role of PSM for parasite control in ruminant production systems is appraisal.
Evaluation of efficacy expectations for novel and non-chemical helminth control strategies in ruminants.
TLDR
Four novel parasite control methods (vaccines, nematophagous fungi, condensed tannins, and immunonutrition) are assessed based on the potential performance criteria.
Testing for direct anthelmintic effects of bioactive forages against Trichostrongylus colubriformis in grazing sheep.
TLDR
The present experimental design enabled us to investigate the direct anthelmintic effects of forages that contain plant secondary metabolites (PSM) towards the intestinal nematode Trichostrongylus colubriformis, and found that grazing on the PSM-rich forages did not affect the immature and adult parasite populations.
