The results of this study indicate that leaf extract of L. spinosa possesses significant anthelminthic efficacy against the adult stages and migrating larvae of T. spiralis, and the encysted muscle larvae of parasite are comparatively less sensitive to L.spinosa leaf extract treatment.
Emerging Anthelmintic Resistance in Poultry: Can Ethnopharmacological Approaches Offer a Solution?
TLDR
Plants from a broad range of species produce a wide variety of compounds that are potential anthelmintics candidates and flavonoids and tannins have been shown to act synergistically and are complementary to praziquantel.
