Anthelmintic activity of essential oils of Cymbopogon nardus and Azadirachta indica on Fasciola gigantica
The efficacy of essential oils of Cymbopogan nardus (citronella) and Azadirachta indica (neem) on Fasciola gigantica was assessed in vitro. The essential oil of citronella showed a potential anthelmintic activity whereas neem oil did not show any significant effect. Study revealed that 1% citronella oil showed anthelmintic effect on live Fasciola gigantica. The in vitro anthelmintic effect was evaluated in comparison with control and score index was made based on gross motility. The morphological variation and histopathological changes in treated and control fluke was studied.
