WP4 Bark CT and protozoa

Illustration: Anne de Boer

The aim is to test the biological effects of bark CT extracts on selected protozoa in laboratory

Coccidiosis is a serious problem in many livestock species, including cattle and sheep, caused by protozoa that invade and destruct the intestinal mucosa. Products from extraction and fractionation of bark will be tested in laboratory against some pathogenic protozoa found in lambs.
