Antioxidant and Anti-Inflammatory Activities of Pomegranate (Punica granatum) on Eimeria papillata-Induced Infection in Mice

Investigation of the effects of pomegranate peel extract (PPE) on the outcome of coccidiosis caused by Eimeria papillata in mice showed that PPE treatment significantly attenuated inflammation and injury of the jejunum induced by E. papillATA infections.

Role of Phoenix dactylifera in ameliorating Eimeria papillata-induced hepatic injury in mice

It is concluded that date fruit could offer protection against hepatotoxicity as well as ameliorate preexisting liver damage.

Anti-coccidial and anti-apoptotic activities of palm pollen grains on Eimeria papillata-induced infection in mice

PPE showed both anti-coccidial, anti-inflammatory and anti-apoptotic activities, so it can be used in developing new herbal medicine against animal coccidiosis and may be suitable agent for treating eimeriosis associated inflammatory response.

Metabolic Disturbance and Hepatic Tissue Damage Induced by Eimeria papillota Infection

Investigation of the metabolic change as well as the hepatic inflammatory response caused by Eimeria papillata infection showed that infection of mice with E. papilata induced metabolic disturbance, inflammation and injury of the liver, providing evidence that the parasites are able to induce a metabolic disturbances and hepatic tissue injury.

Anticoccidial and Antioxidant Activities of Moringa oleifera Leaf Extract on Murine Intestinal Eimeriosis

It is shown that moringa leaf extract has anticoccidial, anti-oxidant and anti-apoptotic activities in mice infected with Eimeria papillata, and this study evidenced that MLE reduced oxidative damage by decreasing TBARS and iNOS expression, and increasing the GSH and GPX levels.

Antioxidant, hepatoprotective, and ameliorative effects of Azadirachta indica on Eimeria papillata-induced infection in mice

It is concluded that A. indica leaves contain potent antioxidant compounds that could offer protection against hepatotoxicity as well as ameliorate preexisting liver damage and oxidative stress conditions.

Renal tissue damage due to Eimeria coecicola infection in rabbits

The results obtained from this study suggest that E. coecicola infection induced renal tissue damage, and both carbohydrates and protein content in the infected renal tissue were reduced.



Efficacy of garlic extract on hepatic coccidiosis in infected rabbits (Oryctolagus cuniculus): histological and biochemical studies.

The rabbits were divided into three groups, of 12 rabbits each, and coccidiosis in G2 induced histopathological alterations in liver tissue, marked cytoplasmic vacuolations in hepatocytes with clear signs of karyolysis, and dilatation of sinusoids with increase in Kupffer cells.

Comparison of four murine Eimeria species in immunocompetent and immunodeficient mice.

Results indicate that during primary infections, parasite replication is under partial immunological control for all Eimeria species, however, the control is mechanistically different for E. papillata because the adaptive immune response does not contribute to the control of primary infections.

Chemotherapeutic approaches to protozoa: Coccidiae – current level of knowledge and outlook

New possibilities have been opened up in the treatment of Eimeria-induced coccidiosis in poultry and mammals, due to improvements in treatment and, or metaphylaxis.

Allium sativum-induced death of African trypanosomes

The oily extract appears to be diallyl-disulfide (DAD) and may interfere with the parasites’ synthesis of membrane lipids and cure experimentally infected mice of trypanosomiasis in 4 days when given at a dose of 120 mg/kg per day.

Subclinical coccidiosis in Angora rabbits, a field survey in Himachal Pradesh, India.

Eight species of coccidia were identified in 180 out of 314 faecal samples or topotypes from four commercial rabbitries in Kangra Valley of Himachal Pradesh and the level of infection based on the oocyst output data, was found to be related to management practices.

In vitro effect of garlic extract and metronidazole against Neoparamoeba pemaquidensis, page 1987 and isolated amoebae from Atlantic salmon.

In the present study, the in vitro effects of crude extract of garlic and metronidazole were investigated using a primary culture toxicity assay and garlic extract appeared to be completely effective at killing a cultured strain of Neoparamoeba pemaquidensis in vitro at a dilution of 1:100 with in 24 h.
