  • Unsaturated aliphatic isobutylamides from Asteraceae, Rutaceae and Piperaceae are potential agents to control schistosomiasis. Affinin (N-isobutyl-2,6,8_decatrienamide) from Heliopsis longipes has strong molluscicidal activity against Physa occidentalis (LD5e ca 100 PM) and the cercariae of the fluke. The amide has also been shown to be present in Wedelia parviceps flowers.
