Abstract:
The aim of the present study is to investigate the preparation and biological evaluation of a probiotic labneh synergistic with garlic and onion oil against Schistosoma mansoni in infected mice. The results pointed out that, probiotic labneh containing garlic and onion oil have demonstrated an anti-schistosomal activity against Schistosoma mansoni-infected mice. The levels of protection reduction ratio in total worm couple, male and female ratio were 66.67, 57.14 and 50.0% in mice infected with Schistosoma mansoni fed on probiotic labneh with garlic oil and were 50, 57.14 and 50% with onion oil, respectively. The mean percentage of reduction in total ova count in liver were 70.0 and 56.44% in mice infected with S. mansoni and fed on probiotic labneh containing garlic and onion oil, respectively. The mean values of immature, mature and dead oogram in mice infected with S. mansoni and fed on probiotic labneh containing garlic oil were 44.0±1.47, 43.0±3.5 and 7.0±2.5, respectively and 47.0±2.82, 46.0±0.77 and 5.0±0.57 in mice infected with S. mansoni and fed on probiotic labneh containing onion oil respectively. Data, also, showed that probiotic labneh containing garlic and onion oil increased the dead oogram in mice infected with S. mansoni. Data can be concluded that probiotic labneh containing garlic and onion oil may be play a great role as a protective food to control parasites.
