Abstract
Helminthiasis is any macroparasitic disease of humans and animals in which a part of the body is infected with parasitic worms, called helminths. They are responsible of major cause of different life threatening manifestation for mammals including human round the world. According to WHO report, more than 1.5 billion people, or 24% of the world's population are infected with soil-transmitted helminth infections worldwide in 2011. Infections are widely distributed in tropical and subtropical areas, with the greatest numbers occurring in sub-Saharan Africa, American countries, China and East Asia. Over 270 million preschool-age children and over 600 million school-age children were intensively manifested by these parasites. The main species that infect people are the roundworm ( Ascaris lumbricoides ), the whipworm ( Trichuris trichiura ) and the hookworms ( Necator americanus and Ancylostoma duodenale ). The mortality associated with heavy roundworm infection is predominantly manifested specifically in children. Albendazole, mebendazole, triclabendazole, thiabendazole, ivermectin, niclosamide, rafoxanide and other popular synthetic anthelmintic drugs were used in helminthiasis. However, resistance has been developing very fast and is spreading in tropical and subtropical countries. Thus, this has increased the need for development of novel anthelmintic drugs. Utilization of traditional medicine should be considered in this scenario to kill these parasitic worms and it will help to find out newer molecular entities. The exploration of folklore or ethnic knowledge will facilitate to find out an array of newer compounds to design for better anthelmintic drugs to treat sufferer of helminthic manifestation. Several traditional plants were screened in our laboratory for treatment of helminthiasis.
