SUMMARY Chicory is a perennial crop that has been investigated as a forage source for outdoor-reared ruminants and pigs, and has been reported to have anthelmintic properties. Here, we investigated in vitro anthelmintic effects of forage chicory-extracts against the highly prevalent swine parasites Ascaris suum and Oesophagostomum dentatum. Methanol extracts were prepared and purified from two different cultivars of chicory (Spadona and Puna II). Marked differences were observed between the… 

In vitro anthelmintic activity assessment of six medicinal plant aqueous extracts against donkey strongyles.

The results proved the anthelmintic efficacy of the tested plant extracts, highlighting the need for further research into plant bioactive molecules both in vitro and in vivo.

Effects of selected Palestinian plants on the in vitro exsheathment of the third stage larvae of gastrointestinal nematodes

Results suggest that extracts from Rhamnus elaternus, Epilobium hirsutum, Leucaena leucocephala and RhamNus palaestinus have promising anthelmintic activity, with potential applications in animal therapeutics and feed.

Antiparasitic activity of chicory (Cichorium intybus) and its natural bioactive compounds in livestock: a review

The available evidence indicates that feeding chicory can reduce faecal egg counts and worm burdens of abomasal nematodes, but not infections with intestinal worms, in ruminants, and research gaps and perspectives on the potential use of chicory as a nutraceutical forage and a source of bioactive compounds for parasite control in livestock are discussed.

The impact of certain flavourings and preservatives on the survivability of eggs of Ascaris suum and Trichuris suis

The article describes a laboratory study of nematocidal properties of flavourings with antibacterial effect against Ascaris suum and Trichuris suis Schrank, and the strongest negative impact on the eggs of parasitic nematodes was displayed by cinnamaldehyde flavouring.

Antiparasitic activity in Asteraceae with special attention to ethnobotanical use by the tribes of Odisha, India

This review provides detailed information on the reported Asteraceae plant extracts found throughout the world and on isolated secondary metabolites that can inhibit protozoan parasites such as Plasmodium, Trypanosoma, Leishmania, and intestinal worms.

Assessment of the anthelmintic activity of medicinal plant extracts and purified condensed tannins against free-living and parasitic stages of Oesophagostomum dentatum

The results suggest that CT may have promise as an alternative parasite control option for O. dentatum in pigs, particularly against adult stages, and demonstrate a varied susceptibility of different life-cycle stages of the same parasite to CT, which may offer an insight into the anthelmintic mechanisms of these commonly found plant compounds.

The effect of chicory (Cichorium intybus) and sulla (Hedysarum coronarium) on larval development and mucosal cell responses of growing lambs challenged with Teladorsagia circumcincta

Elevated immune responses against T. circumcincta infections in growing lambs grazing on either sulla or chicory compared to those grazing on grass/clover are suggested, probably due to differences in forage nutritional values.
