Anti-coccidial properties and mechanisms of an edible herb, Bidens pilosa, and its active compounds for coccidiosis
It is found that B. pilosa at 100 ppm or more significantly suppressed E. tenella as evidenced by reduction in mortality rate, oocyst excretion and gut pathological severity in chickens and its minimum prophylactic duration was 3 days.
Anti-coccidial, anthelmintic and antioxidant activities of pomegranate (Punica granatum) peel extract
The study revealed that pomegranate as a natural product has protective effects against E. papillata-induced coccidiosis as well as it possesses an anthelmintic activity.
Anti-coccidial and anti-apoptotic activities of palm pollen grains on Eimeria papillata-induced infection in mice
PPE showed both anti-coccidial, anti-inflammatory and anti-apoptotic activities, so it can be used in developing new herbal medicine against animal coccidiosis and may be suitable agent for treating eimeriosis associated inflammatory response.
Anticoccidial activities of Chitosan on Eimeria papillata-infected mice
Chitosan showed anti-inflammatory and protective effects against E. papillata infection as indicated by a reduction in both oocyst output and in the number of parasite developmental stages following CS treatment.
Effects of mushroom and herb polysaccharides on cellular and humoral immune responses of Eimeria tenella-infected chickens.
It is concluded from this study that supplementation with mushroom and herb extracts resulted in enhancement of both cellular and humoral immune responses in E. tenella-infected chickens.
Effects of Artemisia annua extracts on sporulation of Eimeria oocysts
This study is the first to demonstrate that all types of A. annua extracts do not necessarily have a similar activity, and the interaction of all contents and their relative concentrations is an important factor for sporulation stimulation or inhibition.
Comparison of four murine Eimeria species in immunocompetent and immunodeficient mice.
Results indicate that during primary infections, parasite replication is under partial immunological control for all Eimeria species, however, the control is mechanistically different for E. papillata because the adaptive immune response does not contribute to the control of primary infections.
Astragalus membranaceus: A Review of its Protection Against Inflammation and Gastrointestinal Cancers.
How the Astragalus herb and AST influence the immune system, modulate various cancer signaling pathways, and interact with specific transcription molecules during protection against gastrointestinal inflammation and cancers is discussed.
