Argentinean’s Plants with Interest in Ethnomedicine as Wormers

Full Text PDF

Abstract:

Plants are different all over the world and its indications change according to the country they are located. This paper is developed in order to perform a comprehensive literature´s review about plants used as anti-parasitic either in traditional or popular medicine in Argentina, and to provide a scientific support for their use in this medical indication. All Ethnobotany, Ethnomedicine, Phytomedicine books from Libraries of the Faculty of Exact Sciences Faculty of Medical Sciences, Agricultural Science, from all National Universities in Argentina were included in the study. Herbal characteristics and therapies were searched in online databases such as Medline PubMed, Science Direct and Scopus. The results obtained show the potential of Ethnomedicine in Argentina as a source of active ingredients for phytotherapy, providing data about species for anti-parasitic treatment. Thus, we found many Argentinean’s plants with anti-parasitic properties which might be considered alternatives for natural treatment or future drug development against wormers.
