Preliminary studies on the efficacy of Aloe vera (Aloe barbadensis) extracts on experimental Trypanosoma brucei brucei infection of mice

Preliminary studies on the efficacy of Aloe vera (Aloe barbadensis) extracts on experimental Trypanosoma brucei brucei infection of mice

Bio Research 3(1): 21-25

Extracts of A. vera were administered to experimentally infected mice with the Nigeria strain of T. brucei brucei. The thirty-two mice involved in the study were split into 8 groups of 4 mice each and treated intraperitoneally with the aqueous and ethanolic A. vera extracts at 20, 40 and 80 mg/kg body weight and 3.5 mg Berenil (standard trypanocidal drug)/kg. Those untreated with 3.5 mg Berenil/kg had a parasitaemia at 3 days post treatment.
