 Bonagua MRE

The treatment of Ascariasis using the two plant medicines significantly produced a change in the number of ova count before and after treatment. This study showed that both ipil-ipil and niyog-niyogan are almost similar in their effectiveness with pyrantel pamoate. The treatment is safe without any untoward effects noted This study also found out that of the two plant medicines, it is niyog-niyogan that is more effective than ipil-ipil in the treatment of Ascariasis Based on the above findings: 1. A follow up research should be done with a bigger population in order to validate the findings that niyog-niyogan is more effective than ipil-ipil 2. The environmental sanitation program should be more emphasized in the community in order to abolish or at least decrease parasitic diseases and other infections 3. That children as young as 2 years old should be taught to practice good personal hygiene in order to prevent parasitic and other infection. (Conclusion and Recommedation)
