In vitro anthelmintic potentials of Xylopia aethiopica and Monodora myristica from Nigeria

Monodora myristica and Xylopia aethiopica are two spices that have been traditionally used as a vermifuge in Ayurveda. The main aim of the research work was to investigate the phytochemical constituents of the aqueous, ethanol and methanol extracts of the two spices and the anthelmintic activity of the extracts of their seeds against Eudrilus eugeniae.

Effect of certain insect growth regulators on the lipid content of some tissues of the desert locust Schistocerca gregaria

The present study was carried out to investigate the metabolic effects of pyriproxyfen, tebufenozide or lufenuron on the lipid content in two different tissues: hemolymph and fat body of the early-, mid- and late-aged old nymphs as well as 1- and 4-days old adult females. Hemolymph lipid content of the early-aged nymphs had been subjected to a reducing effect after treatment with high concentration of insect growth...
