In Vitro Assessment of Anthelmintic Activities of AgO Nanoparticle in Comparison to Closantel Against Liver Fluke Dicrocoelium Dendriticum

The present study determines the anthelmintic properties of silver oxide nanoparticles (AgO) as a new method in dicrocoeliasis treatment, in vitro assay and provides a basis for future research on the control of this common trematode.

Biomedical Evaluation of Lansium parasiticum Extract-Protected Silver Nanoparticles Against Haemonchus contortus, a Parasitic Worm

A sharp increase of stress-responsive enzymes' activity, like catalase, superoxide dismutase, and glutathione peroxidase activity, along with the concentration of glutATHione, was observed in worm tissue, which indicated a LAgNP-responsive alteration of metabolism.

Antioxidant Activity of Cumin Oil Mediated Silver Nanoparticles

Nanotechnology is one of the advancing fields in biotechnology with a vast array of applications. The introduction of Nanoparticles (NPs) has revolutionized every field including medicine, nutrition

Nanotechnology in veterinary medicine: a review

The nanotechnology was highlighted as a promise alternative in the current context of Brazilian technological innovation involving animal health, as well as a possible diagnostic tool and highlighting its potential therapeutic use in disease control in veterinary medicine.

Modifcation of anthelmintic drugs by nanotechnology (review)

The purpose of the research is to analyze and summarize the literature data and the results of our own studies on the use of drug delivery systems and methods for increasing the solubility and efcacy



Anthelmintic Potential of Thymoquinone and Curcumin on Fasciola gigantica

Both thymoquinone and curcumin appeared to be promising anthelmintic compounds for further investigations and it was concluded that both the compounds understudy will decrease the detoxification ability of F. gigantica, while inhibition of CatL will significantly affect their virulence potential.

Evaluation of anthelmintic activity of biologically synthesized silver nanoparticles against the gastrointestinal nematode, Haemonchus contortus

The overall findings of the present study show that the experimental plant extract contains reducing properties for the synthesis of AgNPs which, in turn, showed potent anthelmintic properties.

Antileishmanial effect of silver nanoparticles and their enhanced antiparasitic activity under ultraviolet light

Determination of the antileishmanial effects of Ag-NPs is very important for the further development of new compounds containing nanoparticles in leishmaniasis treatment, and this effect was more significant in the presence of UV light.

Genotoxic potential of Fasciolagigantica infection in experimentally infected rabbits

The genotoxic potential of F. gigantica infection in rabbits, experimentally infected with the metacercarial cysts of this parasite, has been investigated using the standard comet assay and micronucleus test on the isolated hepatocytes and the whole blood from the infected rabbits.

Phytopharmacological overview of Tribulus terrestris

The aim of this review is to create a database for further investigations of the discovered phytochemical and pharmacological properties of this plant to promote research and help in confirmation of its traditional use along with its value-added utility, eventually leading to higher revenues from the plant.

The Sigma Class Glutathione Transferase from the Liver Fluke Fasciola hepatica

It is shown that a purified recombinant form of the F. hepatica Sigma class GST has likely multi-functional roles in the host-parasite interaction from general detoxification and bile acid sequestration to PGD synthase activity and influences activity of host immune cells.
