Bioassay-guided isolation and purification of phytochemicals with anti-parasitic properties from Cissus ruspolii
MetadataShow full item record
Many smallholder farmers and pastoralists rely on their indigenous knowledge, practices and locally available plants to manage both human and livestock parasitic infections(1). We previously identified in screening study that aqueous crude extract and its relatively late-eluting fractions from one of such plants, Cissus ruspolii, possess strong in vitro anthelmintic properties(2,3). Thus, these fractions may contain phytochemicals with anti-parasitic properties. The objective of this study was to further isolate, purify and characterise anthelmintic phytochemicals from C. ruspolii.
