From: Evaluation of anthelmintic potential of the Ethiopian medicinal plant Embelia schimperi Vatke in vivo and in vitro against some intestinal parasites

Groups Dose administered (mg/kg) Mean no of parasites % deparasitization % host clearance
Group I 750 1.2 ± 0.49*a 40 40
Group II 1000 0.0 ± 0.0*b 100 100
Group III 2000 0.0 ± 0.0*b 100 100

Group V vehicle 2.00 ± 0.32 0 0
  1. PQ: Praziquantel
  2. * Mean number of parasite within row is significantly different at p <0.05, while the letters a b show significant difference at p <0.01 as determined by LSD multiple comparison test
