Antileishmanial activity of aqueous onion extract in vitro
Community Health Sciences
Onion has had an important dietary and medicinal role for centuries. In this study the antileishmanial effect of aqueous onion extract (AOE) was investigated. Five leishmanial strains in the promastigote stage were studied in vitro. Seventy-two hour inoculation of AOE gave an IC100 and average IC50 values of 1.25 mg/ml and 0.376 mg/ml, respectively, against all leishmanial strains tested.
