Abstract The use of Lasia spinosa. (L.) Thwaites (Araceae) leaves in the treatment of intestinal worm infections is a common ethnobotanical practice in the Naga tribes of India. In the current study, the anticestodal efficacy of L. spinosa. leaf extract was investigated against a tapeworm using Hymenolepis diminuta.–rat animal model. The anticestodal effects of L. spinosa. leaf extract was determined by monitoring the eggs per gram of feces (EPG) counts and percentage worm recovery rates after… Expand
Efficacy of Lasia spinosa leaf extract in treating mice infected with Trichinella spiralis
TLDR
The results of this study indicate that leaf extract of L. spinosa possesses significant anthelminthic efficacy against the adult stages and migrating larvae of T. spiralis, and the encysted muscle larvae of parasite are comparatively less sensitive to L.spinosa leaf extract treatment. Expand
