nucifera husk fiber demonstrated excellent antitrichomonal
activity ([IC.sub.50] value of 5.8 [micro]g/mL), standing out among the other tested plants, although the activity was less than that of metronidazole.
Sertaconazole also has antibacterial, antiinflammatory, antitrichomonal
, antipruritic actions in addition.
They were assigned to guideline-recommended treatment with either azithromycin or doxycycline alone or with a single 2-g dose of tinidazole, an antitrichomonal
agent, in order to test the hypothesis that adding the second agent would boost cure rates.
With the purpose of searching for new antitrichomonal agents, Xanthium brasilicum Vell and Argemone mexicana L, traditionally used for treatment of clinical signs associated with trichomoniasis such as venereal diseases, were selected to evaluate the activity of their chloroform, methanol and aqueous crude extracts against Trichomonas vaginalis trophozoites in vitro.
All extracts of Xanthium brasilicum were effective against all tests and had a greater effect than controls, showing that Xanthium brasilicum can be considered to have significant antitrichomonal activity.
