The primary objective of these experiments was to compare the effectiveness of motility, recovery, and methyl-thiazolyl-tetrazolium (MTT) reduction assays for determining anthelmintic activity of plant extracts and purified compounds from these extracts. Caenorhabditis elegans was used as the test organism. High-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) grade water and M9 medium were used as the solvents. Copper, a common metal pollutant, and the anthelmintic drug levamisole were used as… CONTINUE READING
