Effet alicament du manioc : Mode d’action sur le parasitisme des petits ruminants par Heamonchus Contortus

Abstract : The increasing development of resistance to synthetic anthelmintics in parasite populations has led to the development of new alternatives to fight against gastrointestinal parasitism in domestic ruminants. Thus recourse to the use of plant resources available in farm becomes a scientific challenge. The objective of this course is to assess the nutraceutical content of cassava leaves to find the mode of action of the activity on the parasite Haemonchus contortus. In this regard, a study was performed on “Martinik " lambs contaminated with H. contortus and fed with sweet cassava dry foliage. The present work has demonstrated the anthelmintic effect of sweet cassava on embryonic and larval development of the parasite. No activity was observed on the parasite level given the low levels of tannins found in the variety of cassava. However, resilience was observed. This preliminary experiment should be supplemented by further study on the evaluation of the effect in the development of the infective stage and on the fertility of female worms.
