Authors(1) :-Habiba L. M

Helminthiasis and anthelmintic resistance in goat farming in malaysia. The objective of this study were to Assess, antioxidant and in vitro larvicidal activity of Kenaf (Hibiscus cannabinus) and Moringa oleifera leaves against Haemonchus contortus. The Level of antioxidant in the leaves of Kenaf and Moringa leaves was determined by using HPLC and compared with quercetin as standard. The level of antioxidant for Kenaf, Moringa and quercetin (the standard) gave 353 ppm, 455 ppm and 375 ppm respectively. There was no significant difference among the means for the three. Larvicidal activity at different concentrations (10%, 20%, 30%, 40%, and 50%) of ethanolic extract of Kenaf and Moringa leaves were evaluated against the first and second stage larva of Haemonchus contortus. The ethanol leaf extract of Kenaf and Moringa leaves inhibited 33.2% and 44.0% of the larva at 30% concentration respectively at (P ? 0.05). In conclusion, the ethanol extracts of Kenaf and Moringa leaves possessed larvicidal activities against first (L1) and second (L2) stage larva ofH. contortus. Further in vivo studies are necessary to confirm the anthelminthic property of the leaf of these plants.
