http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/25773490CONCLUSION: Six ethanolic plant extract showed significant antiprotozoal activity against Blastocystis. M. oppositifolius showed nearly as good activity as the reference antiprotozoal drug MTZ. Historically, the active plants found in this study have been used against dysentery, diarrhoea or other stomach disorders. Nowadays they are not used specifically for dysentery, but they are being used as medicinal plants against various stomach disorders.
