Tracking antibacterial components of Pteris multifida Poir and its antibacterial mechanism

Pteris multifida is an effective Chinese herb for treating dysentery caused by Escherichia coli. It might be a good veterinary antibiotic alternative. In this study, we optimized the extraction condition based on the antibacterial activity of crude extracts from P. multifida, tracked its antibacterial components, and investigated their antibacterial activity, as well as its antibacterial mechanism. The results revealed...

In vivo antimalarial activity, safety and phytochemical screening of Canthium multiflorum (Schumach. &Thonn.) Hiern (Rubiaceae)

Canthium multiflorum (Thonn.) Hiern (Rubiaceae) is a popular herb used by traditional healers in western Burkina Faso. C. multiflorum leaves are widely used in decoction to treat malaria. The present study aims to evaluate its in vivo potential against malaria parasites in mice. The antimalarial activity of the organic and aqueous extracts of C. multiflorum leaves was evaluated on Plasmodium berghei Anka in NMRI mice...

Phytochemical composition and in vitro antileishmanial activity of Bidens pilosa, Tithonia diversifolia and Sonchus oleraceus extracts

Leishmaniasis is the second-largest parasitic killer in the world (after malaria). Currently, there are no effective vaccines or therapeutic interventions thus creating a gap for new alternative remedies in the management of the disease. Medicinal plants offer this attractive option as antileishmanial agents since they are relatively safe, locally available and affordable. The study assessed antileishmanial activity of...

Medicinal plants of the African traditional pharmacopoeia in the management of bovine trypanosomosis: A review

Traditional medicine has remained the most affordable and readily available source of treatment for primary care in poor African communities. Despite the increasingly common practices of traditional medicine to treat animal diseases, this rich endogenous knowledge is not sufficiently documented. The objective of this review is to synthesize information on ethnoveterinary practices to treat bovine trypanosomiasis in...
