The antitrypanosomal activity of methanolic extracts of Anogeissus leiocarpus and Terminalia avicennoides were evaluated in vitro against four strains of Trypanosoma species with minimum inhibitory concentration (MIC) value range of 12.5–50 mg/ml. Successive fractionations of the two plant extracts in water, butanol and ethyl acetate gave a range of… CONTINUE READING
