SOUZA, W.M.A. et al. In vitro evaluation of "alecrim pimenta" (Lippia sidoides Cham.) hydroalcoholic extract (HAE) on the development of gastrointestinal nematode (Trichostrongylidae) eggs. Rev. bras. plantas med. [online]. 2010, vol.12, n.3, pp.278-281. ISSN 1516-0572.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S1516-05722010000300005.

Phytomedicine has been currently used in the control of several parasitic diseases, particularly gastrointestinal ones. The aim of this study was to evaluate the efficacy of the hydroalcoholic extract (HAE) from Lippia sidoides Cham. on the development of gastrointestinal nematode eggs. The ovicidal effect was determined through probabilistic analysis, logistic model, by using the programs R version 2.2.1 and Epi InfoTM 6. Embryonated eggs were obtained from feces of goats naturally infected with Trichostrongylidae nematodes and the fecal egg count was determined by using the modified McMaster technique. Fifty microliters of the suspension containing 40 eggs were transferred to polystyrene plates and incubated with 12 different HAE concentrations, and evaluations were performed during 72h at room temperature. The results demonstrated different efficacy of extracts, with lower egg development rate at 500 mg mL-1. In conclusion, HAE may play an important role on the in vitro development of gastrointestinal nematode eggs, indicating ovicidal activity.
