  • Antiprotozoal Activity against Entamoeba histolytica of Plants Used in Northeast Mexican Traditional Medicine. (mdpi.com)
  • We collected 32 plants used in Northeast Mexican traditional medicine and the methanolic extracts of these species were screened for antiprotozoal activity against E. histolytica trophozoites using in vitro tests. (mdpi.com)
  • showed the more significant antiprotozoal activity (91.54% and 90.50% growth inhibition at a concentration of 150 µg/mL with IC 50 values of 59.14 and 60.07 µg/mL, respectively). (mdpi.com)
  • Bioassay-guided fractionation of the methanolic extracts from these two plants afforded carvacrol ( 1 ) and chalepensin ( 2 ), respectively, as bioactive compounds with antiprotozoal activity. (mdpi.com)
  • Find
  • Because of the side-effects and the resistance that pathogenic protozoa build against the standard antiparasitic drugs, e.g., metronidazole, much recent attention has been paid to plants used in traditional medicine around the world in order to find new antiprotozoal agents. (mdpi.com)
