A medicinal plant called ipacinalis has been found to help reduce the symptoms of parasitic worms and prevent the disease.
The plant is used to treat an infection caused by parasitic worms.
The researchers, from the University of Exeter, say the drug can be used to help prevent the spread of the parasite.
In the study, published in the journal Parasitology, the researchers looked at the effect of the plant’s compound ipacinib on worms and the liver of mice.
They found that the drug significantly reduced the amount of parasite DNA found in the worm cells.
The compound is used in a number of treatments for human infections.
The compound was previously shown to be effective against the parasitic worm B. burgdorferi.
They found that ipacineib did not have any effect on the worms’ immune system.
The drug also prevented the parasites from multiplying.
The team hopes that the compound could also be used in the treatment of other infections, including the common cold, malaria and HIV.
“This is a major advance in the field of parasitic diseases, because it’s the first time we’ve found that we can stop the worms from reproducing in the host,” said lead author Dr Peter Buss, a professor of pathology at the University’s Department of Medicine.
What are the possible side effects?
Although the research is preliminary, Dr Buss said the researchers were surprised that ipapicinib was effective in reducing the amount and quality of parasite RNA in the liver.
Although a number different types of parasites are known to cause infection in the human body, the disease they cause is typically not caused by one particular species.
Instead, they are caused by different strains of the same parasite.
In humans, the parasite most commonly infects the liver and other organs, which are where the parasite is most active.
This causes the liver to produce more of the drug ipacrinib and the worms to reproduce faster.
However, in animals, the parasites are more likely to be found in other parts of the body, including parts of blood vessels, muscles and nerves.
Dr Buss added that the results of the research were important because it showed the effectiveness of an agent that was previously used to control parasites in the laboratory.
“It’s a promising finding,” he said.
“I think we’ve just scratched the surface of the possibilities of this drug.”
