Phytolacca dodecandra l'Herit. in the control of schistosomiasis

Rivista di Agricoltura Subtropicale e Tropicale 84(1): 59-82

The berries of P. dodecandra have been used traditionally in Ethiopia for washing clothes. The berries have molluscicidal properties and have been considered as promising in the control of schistosomiasis. Research undertaken on the biology, chemical composition, propagation, cultivation, genetic improvement, toxicology, molluscicidal and detergent properties of this species is discussed.
