species share similar life cycles and rely on arthropod vectors to transmit infective third stage larvae during blood-feeding.
Larvicidal, ovicidal and repellent activities of the leaf extract of two cucurbitacious plants against filarial
vector Culex quinquefasciatus (Say) (Diptera: Culicidae).
Large-scale programmes for the treatment and control of filarial
diseases, such as river blindness, have been in place for over twenty years, based on administering drugs to entire populations.
Many researchers have used plant-derived products for control of malarial (9), dengue (3) and filarial
(7) vectors dealing with larvicidal activities.

Lymphatic filariasis (LF), also known as elephantiasis, results from mosquito-borne infection with filarial
worm parasites, predominantly Wuchereria bancrofti, and can lead to severe disfigurement from lymphedema and hydrocele.
Secondary lymphoedema is due to the obstruction of the lymphatic system caused by trauma, surgical intervention, invasive tumours, radiotherapy or filarial
infestation (parasitic worms that affect the human connective and lymphatic tissue) (Menz.
The company stated that the neglected diseases are two filarial
worm diseases (onchocerciasis, or river blindness, and lymphatic filariasis, commonly known as elephantiasis) and tuberculosis (TB).
A macrofilaricidal agent capable of eliminating adult filarial
parasites is urgently needed.
