The present studies have been planned to evaluate ovicidal efficacy of Ziziphus mauritiana and Terminalia arjuna leaves. For this purpose, egg hatch test (EHT) was conducted on nematode ova to investigate the in vitro ovicidal effects of crude aqueous extract (CAE) and crude aqueous methanolic extracts (CAME) of the leaves of the plants. Lethal concentration 50 (LC 50 ) values of CAE and CAME of Ziziphus mauritiana leaves were 0.1773 and 0.6778 while of Terminalia arjuna leaves were 1.502 and 3… Expand

In vivo anthelmintic activity of Azadirachta indica A. Juss seeds against gastrointestinal nematodes of sheep.
TLDR
Though of low efficacy compared with levamisole, the use of A. indica seeds against gastrointestinal nematodes may be justified in some situations, depending on the nature and intensity of the helminth infections. Expand
In vitro screening of two Nigerian medicinal plants (Vernonia amygdalina and Annona senegalensis) for anthelmintic activity.
TLDR
Although traditional veterinary healers and local livestock farmers claim both plants are effective as anthelmintics, the result indicate that only A. senegalensis showed promisingAnthelmintic activity especially with use of ground whole plant materials as used by some farmers. Expand
Anthelmintic activity of Artemisia brevifolia in sheep.
TLDR
It was found that, although, Artemisia brevifolia whole plant possesses anthelmintic activity against nematodes, it is not comparable with levamisole (99.2% reduction in EPG) at any of the doses tried in this study. Expand

TLDR
The lowest intestinal worm burden was recovered from sheep drenched with 8% w/w Quebracho extract and the administration of Que bracho extract at 8% of food intake for 3 days did not affect FEC or worm burdens in sheep infected with the abomasal species compared to controls. Expand

Use of plants in novel approaches for control of gastrointestinal helminths in livestock with emphasis on small ruminants.
TLDR
In vivo controlled studies have shown that plant remedies have in most instances resulted in reductions in the level of parasitism much lower than those observed with anthelmintic drugs, and it is essential to validate the anti-parasitic effects of plant products in relation to their potential anti-nutritional and other side effects.
