Numerous efforts to date have been implemented in the control of avian coccidiosis caused by the Eimeria parasite. Since the appearance of anticoccidial chemical compounds, the search for new alternatives continues. Today, no product is available to cope with the disease; however, the number of products commercially available is constantly increasing. In this review, we focus on natural products and their anticoccidial activity. This group comprises fatty acids, antioxidants, fungal and herbal… Expand

In Vitro Assessment of Anticoccidials: Methods and Molecules
TLDR
This review aims to summarize the protocols that have been successfully applied in vitro on coccidiosis as well as to suggest potential cues to improve research on this field, as the surge of botanicals as anticoccidial molecules is on the rise. Expand
Diagnosis and control of chicken coccidiosis: a recent update
TLDR
Genomic study on diversity of Eimeria parasite becomes imperative for effective vaccine design against coccidiosis for a new look on the control strategy becomes imperative. Expand
Field trial of medicinal plant, Bidens pilosa, against eimeriosis in broilers
TLDR
Feed supplemented with B. pilosa can be used as an effective means to control eimeriosis on chicken farms and lowered morbidity/mortality rate, decreased oocysts per gram of feces and gut pathology and augmented the anticoccidial index. Expand

Fifty years ago, coccidiosis was probably the most feared disease of advanced poultry producers of that day. Because of the discovery and use of preventive chemotherapy, that fear is no longerExpand
Role of natural antioxidants for the control of coccidiosis in poultry.
TLDR
Information regarding antioxidant activity, doses and mechanism of action of vitamin A, vitamin E, Zinc, Selenium and herbal complexes such as saponins, flavonoids, tannins, aromatic plants and their essential oils is provided in this paper, which may serve as new beneficial anticoccidial compounds and an essential component of alternative strategies for control of resistant Eimeria strains.

Dietary modulation of avian coccidiosis.
TLDR
These results are consistent with reports of effects of diets high in n-3 fatty acids on other protozoan parasites which suggest that the state of oxidative stress induced by these diets in the cells of both host and parasites is responsible for their parasitic actions. Expand
