Abstract


The principal objective for our study was to evaluate the efficacy of Carica papaya seeds against Entamoeba histolytica infection compared with metronidazole by using mice models. A single oral dose of Caricapapaya seeds water extracts of up to (0.1ml ?mice?day) reduced parasite appearance in feces and disappear completely atthe 8th day compared with metronidazole the cysts parasite continued till 10th day. The histomorphological study findings showed in the group which was given Carica papaya seeds the majority of tissue intestine return to normalshape. These finding indicated that Carica papaya seeds may be effective in treating Entamoeba histolytica.
