Invitro Antihelmintic Activities of Four Medicinal Plants against Haemonchus contortus

Hailelule Aleme, Yordanos Awetahegne, Abraha Tesfaye

Abstract: In vitro experiments were conducted to find out the anthelmintic effects of crude aqueous extracts of the leaves of Cordia africana, Achyranthes aspera, Croton macrostachyus and Schinus molle against adults of live H. contortus and the efficacy of these crude aqueous extracts of leaves were determined based on the mortality rate of the adult parasite. The plants tested for the efficacy at 4mg/ml of the aqueous extracts of Cordia africana, Achyrantus aspera, Schinus molle and Croton macrostachyus was 95%, 90%, 80% and 70% respectively against the adult stage of Haemonchus contortus. The efficacy of Albendazole against the adult parasite, on the other hand, was dose dependent and all the adult worms were dead at a concentration of 0.5mg/ml within 24 hours. The overall findings of the current study indicated that most of the plants have potential anthelmintic effect and further in vitro and in vivo evaluation should proceed using these plants in the future.
