Abstract The in vitro activity of root-tuber-peel extract of Flemingia vestita, an indigenous plant consumed by the natives in Northeast India, was tested against helminth parasites. Live parasites (nematode: Ascaris suum from pigs, A. lumbricoides from humans, Ascaridia galli and Heterakis gallinarum from domestic fowl; cestode: Raillietina echinobothrida from domestic fowl; trematode: Paramphistomum sp. from cattle) were collected in 0.9 % physiological buffered saline (PBS) and maintained at… 
Anthelmintic Efficacy of Medicinal Plants from Northeast India against Hookworms : an In Vitro Study on Ancylostoma Ceylanicum
TLDR
The phytochemicals of the test plants thus suggestedly may have a vermifugal role with regard to nematode parasites, though less effective than in soft-bodied flukes and tapeworm parasites.

TLDR
The phytochemicals of the test plants thus suggestedly may have a vermifugal role with regard to nematode parasites, though less effective than in soft-bodied flukes and tapeworm parasites.
Anthelmintic efficacy of flemingia vestita (fabaceae): Genistein-induced alterations in the esterase activity in the cestode,raillietina echinobothrida
TLDR
A pronounced decline in the visible stain intensity in the cholinergic components of the nervous system and in the tegument was noticeable, indicating extremely reduced activity of NSE and ChE in these sites.
In-vitro anthelmintic activity of three Bangladeshi plants against Paramphistomum cervi and Haemonchus contortus
TLDR
In-vitro analysis was conducted to evaluate the probable anthelmintic effect of crude aqueous and hydroalcoholic extracts of Ananas sativus leaves, Erythrina variegata barks and Alocasia indica rootstocks against adult Paramphistomum cervi and Haemonchus contortus against adult worm infections.
Anthelmintic effect of a methanol extract of leaves of Dregea volubilis on Paramphistomum explanatum
TLDR
The present SEM-based study established the anthelmintic activity of MEDV, which was found with all the doses through paralysis and death of the organisms.
Potentilla fulgens (Family Rosaceae), a medicinal plant of north-east India: a natural anthelmintic?
TLDR
The result suggests that phytochemicals of P. fulgens have anthelmintic potential and the reference drug, PZQ showed more or less similar effect like that of the plant extract.
In vitro and in vivo anthelmintic study of Sesbania sesban var. bicolor, a traditionally used medicinal plant of Santhal tribe in Assam, India
TLDR
The in vivo results substantiated the in vitro and in vivo anthelmintic efficacy of methanolic extract of S. bicolor, and the extract showed a better cestocidal efficacy in a dose-dependent manner, which substantiates the medicinal usage in traditional practice.

Effect of root-tuber extract of Flemingia vestita, a leguminous plant, on Artyfechinostomum sufrartyfex and Fasciolopsis buski: a scanning electron microscopy study
TLDR
The tegumental surface of Artyfechinostomum sufrartyfex as viewed under the scanning electron microscope revealed the presence of double rows of spines in the collar and sloughing off of most of the spines or their deformation as well as wrinkles and rupture of the general teguments.
Macrofilaricidal activity of the stembark of Streblus asper and its major active constituents
TLDR
The crude extract of the stembark of Streblus asper, a traditionally used medicinal plant of India, revealed significant macrofilaricidal activity against Litomosoides carinii and Brugia malayi in rodents, opening up the possibility of generating new leads in the development of novel macrofilericides.
Field trial of Saussurea lappa roots against nematodes and Nigella sativa seeds against cestodes in children.
TLDR
It is conceivable that Saussurea lappa roots and Nigella sativa seeds contain active principles effective against nematodes and cestodes.
Ultrastructural investigations on the effects of praziquantel on human trematodes from Asia: Clonorchis sinensis, Metagonimus yokogawai, Opisthorchis viverrini, Paragonimus westermani and Schistosoma japonicum.
TLDR
It is assumed that the very dense texture of the thick tegument is responsible for the relative refractoriness to praziquantel in vitro, however, in vivo the parasite is successfully eliminated by prazquantel.

TLDR
An ethanolic extract was obtained from the funicles of Acacia auriculiformis and administered orally to 4 pariah dogs naturally infected with Dirofilaria immitis to see if the desired objective is achieved going through the complex and expensive procedure of purification of the active compound.

TLDR
Good agreement between the results of the morphological examination and the assessment of the motility and the tetrazolium reduction confirms the suitability of the latter two assays for in vitro drug screening with O. volvulus.
