Effect of Lepidium sativum L. (Garden Cress) Seed and Its Extract on Experimental Eimeria tenella Infection in Broiler Chickens

  title={Effect of Lepidium sativum L. (Garden Cress) Seed and Its Extract on Experimental Eimeria tenella Infection in Broiler Chickens},
  author={M. Adamu and C. Boonkaewwan},
The anticoccidial effects of Lepidium sativum (LS) seed were assessed on 240, male, broiler chickens aged 1 d following oral inoculation of 1 × 10 5 sporulated E. tenella oocysts. The experimental study was conducted at the Debre Zeit Agricultural Research Center Poultry Farm. LS was included in the feed of the chickens in the form of seed powder, whole seed or extract. Broiler chickens were assigned to eight treatments: noninfected and unsupplemented (control check), infected and… Expand

Therapeutic potential of the methanolic extract of Lepidium sativum seeds on mice infected with Trypanosoma evansi
It is established that intraperitoneal injection of LSSE is more effective than oral administration in the treatment of trypanosome infection in mice and proved that LSSE provided protection against liver tissue damage and decreased the levels of aspartate aminotransferase (AST) and alanine aminodiazepine (ALT).

Effects of Lepidium sativum supplementation on growth and gonadotropins secretion in ovariectomized, estrogen-implanted rabbits
The differential responses of gonadotropins to GnRH in LS-supplemented rabbits suggest differential regulation of the synthesis and secretion of these gonadotropic substances in rabbits. Expand

Safety evaluation studies on Garden cress (Lepidium sativum L.) seeds in Wistar rats
The results showed that acute and subchronic feeding of GC seed for 14 weeks did not produce any toxic effects in male and female rats and thus can be considered non-toxic and safe. Expand
Interaction of dietary flaxseed with coccidia infections in chickens.
D diets containing high amounts of n-3 fatty acids do not affect the development of all Eimeria sp. Expand
Coccidiosis in Fayoumi Chickens at Debre Zeit Agricultural Research Center Poultry Farm, Ethiopia
It is possible to conclude that coccidiosis was the cause of the encountered mortality in this farm and requires an immediate professional intervention and implementation of strict hygienic and control measures. Expand
Effect of selenium and vitamin E on the development of immunity to coccidiosis in chickens.
Dietary supplementation with selenium or vitamin E reduced mortality and increased body weight gain of nonimmunized chickens infected with E. tenella in three of four experiments and suggest that immunization of chickens against coccidiosis is enhanced by Se oritamin E supplementation. Expand
A Study on Clinical Efficacy of Lepidium sativum Seeds in Treatment of Bronchial Asthma
The results of the present study suggest the usefulness of L. sativum seeds in patients with bronchial asthma, with statistically significant improvement in various parameters of pulmonary functions in asthmatic subjects. Expand
Physicochemical Properties of Garden Cress (Lepidium sativum L.) Seed Oil
Garden cress (Lepidium sativum L.) is an edible, underutilised herb, grown mainly for its seeds in India. Physicochemical properties, minor components (unsaponifiable matter, tocopherols,Expand
Study on Coccidiosis in Kombolcha Poultry Farm, Ethiopia
It was noted that clinical coccidioisis was more prevalent in those between 5 and 6 weeks of age than in those around 1–60 days of age, and various managerial problems that are associated with this high prevalence are identified and appropriate control strategies are recommended. Expand
Diets high in n-3 fatty acids reduce cecal lesion scores in chickens infected with Eimeria tenella.
Diets incorporating various levels of n-3 fatty acids from fish (menhaden) oil or flax seed were tested for their abilities to reduce the severity of Eimeria tenella infections in young broiler chicks. Expand
Study of the hypoglycaemic activity of Lepidium sativum L. aqueous extract in normal and diabetic rats.
The aqueous extract of LS exhibits a potent hypoglycaemic activity in rats without affecting basal plasma insulin concentrations, indicating that the underlying mechanism of this pharmacological activity seems to be independent of insulin secretion. Expand
