Anthelminthic/larvicidal activity of some common medicinal plants

Kumari Sunita, Pradeep Kumar, Mohammad Aasif Khan, - Sadaf, Syed Akhtar Husain, D. K. Singh


The helminthic infection are most common disease in different animals and in human beings, which affecting a large proportion of the world population. Helminthic infection can also affect millions of livestock resulting in considerable economic loss in domestic animals. For control of helminthic disease in different part of world are uses synthetic medicines which are very effective in curing helminthiasis, but it’s also causes a number of side effects. The continued uses of synthetic anthelmintic/larvicidal drugs are also causing a major drug resistance problem in several parasitic diseases. The plant derived crude products are less efficient with respect to cure of parasitic diseases but one relatively free from side effect. A large number of medicinal plants are traditionally uses to cure helminthiasis in developing countries. Thus, plant derived drugs are gaining a lot of attention for curing parasitic infection. There are several medicinal plants and their different crude products, organic extracts and active components have been scrutinized for using in various methods in helminthic/larvicidal infection control. The present reviews summarized the use of traditional medicinal plants and their different products further leads to evaluation of new researches.
