From: In vitro antihelmintic effect of fifteen tropical plant extracts on excysted flukes of Fasciola hepatica

Plant extract LC 50 (mg/L) LCL-UCL LC 90 (mg/L) LCL-UCL LC 99 (mg/L) LCL-UCL SD × 2 (df = 10)
A. mexicana 92.85 42.16-124.50 210.44 166.78-306.78 410.04 288.46-1135.26 ±2.197 5.893

  1. LC50 — lethal concentration that kills 50% of the exposed flukes, LC90 — lethal concentration that kills 90% of the exposed flukes, LC99 — lethal concentration that kills 99% of the exposed flukes, UCL: upper confidence limit; LCL: lower confidence limit, SD: standard deviation. × 2 — Chi-square; df: degree of freedom. Significant at p < 0.05 level.
