ETHNOPHARMACOLOGICAL RELEVANCE The aim of the study was to evaluate the in vitro antitrypanosomal and antileishmanial activity of crude extracts of 10 plant species traditionally used in Benin to treat parasitic infections. MATERIALS AND METHODS For each species, dichloromethane, methanol and aqueous extracts were tested. Their antitrypanosomal and antileishmanial activities were evaluated in vitro on Trypanosoma brucei brucei (strain 427) (Tbb) and on promastigotes of Leishmania mexicana… Expand
In vivo antimalarial activity of Keetia leucantha twigs extracts and in vitro antiplasmodial effect of their constituents.
TLDR
This is the first report on the in vivo activity of K. leucantha extracts, the isolation of thirteen compounds and analysis of their antiplasmodial activity, and the results obtained may partially justify the traditional use of the West African tree to treat malaria in Benin. Expand
In vitro antileishmanial and cytotoxicity activities of essential oils from Haplophyllum tuberculatum A. Juss leaves, stems and aerial parts
TLDR
The findings of the present study demonstrated that H. tuberculatum might not be considered as a natural source for production of new anti-leishmanial agents without further analyzing its eventual in vivo toxicity as well as that of major pure compounds. Expand
In vitro Antileishmanial, Antitrypanosomal, and Anti-inflammatory-like Activity of Terminalia mollis Root Bark.
TLDR
The study results support traditional medicinal use of the plant for the treatment of parasitical disorders and revealed for the first time the antitrypanosomal potential, anti-inflammatory-like, and antioxidant activity of Terminalia mollis root. Expand
Chemical composition, cytotoxicity and in vitro antitrypanosomal and antiplasmodial activity of the essential oils of four Cymbopogon species from Benin.
TLDR
Evaluating the in vitro antiplasmodial and antitrypanosomal activities of essential oils of four Cymbopogon species used in traditional medicine as well as their cytotoxicity shows that essential oil of Cymboogon genus can be a good source of antitryPanosomal agents. Expand
In vitro Antileishmanial Activity of Extracts from Endemic Moroccan Medicinal Plant Salvia verbenaca (L.) Briq. ssp verbenaca Maire (S. clandestina Batt. non L)
TLDR
The current investigation reveals that S. clandestina extracts possess activity against three Leishmania species and need further investigation so that the pure bioactive antileishmanial compounds should be isolated with cost effective, promising results and less side effects. Expand
Antitrypanosomal compounds from the essential oil and extracts of Keetia leucantha leaves with inhibitor activity on Trypanosoma brucei glyceraldehyde-3-phosphate dehydrogenase.
TLDR
Several of its constituents and three triterpenic acids present in the dichloromethane leaves extract showed a higher antitrypanosomal activity on bloodstream forms of Tbb as compared to procyclic forms, namely geranyl acetone, phytol, α-ion one, β-ionone, ursolic acid, oleanolic acid and betulinic acid.

Chemical composition, in vitro antioxidant and antiparasitic properties of the essential oils of three plants used in traditional medicine in Benin.
Sclerocarya birrea (Sb), Psidium guajava (Pg) and Eucalyptus camaldulensis (Ec) are widely used in traditional medicine for the treatment of many diseases, some of which were related to oxidativeExpand
In vitro antiplasmodial, antitrypanosomal and antileishmanial activities of selected medicinal plants from Ugandan flora: Refocusing into multi-component potentials.
TLDR
The synergy of plant extracts, so achieved by concerted actions of the ligands, produces adequate perturbation of targets in the four parasite genera, resulting in the strong potencies exhibited by low IC50 values. Expand

In vitro antiplasmodial activity of plants used in Benin in traditional medicine to treat malaria.
TLDR
The in vitro antiplasmodial activity of crude extracts of 12 plant species traditionally used in Benin for the treatment of malaria is evaluated in order to validate their use and gives some justifications for the traditional uses of some investigated plants. Expand
Antileishmanial activity of isolated triterpenoids from Pourouma guianensis.
TLDR
The results indicate that Pourouma guianensis contains many triterpenoids and some, such as ursolic and oleanolic acids, may serve as lead compounds for new antileishmanial drugs, but chemical modifications may be necessary to avoid unselective cytotoxicity. Expand
Alkaloids from Cassytha filiformis and related aporphines: antitrypanosomal activity, cytotoxicity, and interaction with DNA and topoisomerases.
TLDR
Biochemical experiments showed that actinodaphnine, cassythine and dicentrine also interfere with the catalytic activity of topoisomerases in contrast to the four other aporphines, which may explain, at least in part, the effects observed on cancer cells and on trypanosomes. Expand
Triterpenic Acids and Flavonoids from Satureja parvifolia. Evaluation of their Antiprotozoal Activity
TLDR
Antiplasmodial activity of eriodictyol and luteolin is reported here for the first time and the four compounds showed activity against P. falciparum 3D7 strain and Trypanosoma brucei rhodesiense. Expand
Anti-leishmanial and Anti-cancer Activities of a Pentacyclic Triterpenoid Isolated from the Leaves of Terminalia arjuna Combretaceae
TLDR
The methanol extract of the leaves of Terminalia arjuna led to the isolation of a pentacyclic triterpenoid, ursolic acid, which demonstrated in vitro anti-leishmanial and anti-cancer activities. Expand
Bioassay-Guided Isolation of Antimalarial Triterpenoid Acids from the Leaves of Morinda lucida.
TLDR
The EtOH, CH2Cl2, and petroleum ether extracts from Morinda lucida have been shown to exhibit an in vitro antiplasmodial activity against a chloroquine-sensitive Plasmodium falciparum and all tested samples were inactive in vitro. Expand
Antitrypanosomal activity of triterpenoids and sterols from the leaves of Strychnos spinosa and related compounds.
TLDR
A comparative study on the antitrypanosomal activity of the isolated triterpenoids and sterols and some related compounds has indicated that the presence of an oxygenated function at C-28 or an oxygenations of the side chain atC-17 seems to be important for the antitriespanosome activity of triter penoid and sterol.
