    Dr. MAS and Dr. Matie are addressing the press conference and presenting reports on efficacy of homeopathic medicines.

    Chapter 6 (Summary)
    The present study was designed to investigate the prevalence of fasciolosis in buffaloes under farm conditions, efficacy of recently introduced Homeopathic (Trematox) with Allopathic (Zanil, ICI) drug and economic losses in terms of liver damage and decrease in milk production. For this purpose, 500 faecal samples were examined for the presence of Liver Fluke; the prevalence was observed 15% in buffaloes under farm conditions located in City Okara. For therapeutic purpose, sixty naturally infected and 20 healthy buffaloes were selected and divided into four equal groups i.e. A, B, C and D containing 20 animals each. Animals of Group A (healthy animals) were given no medication. Animals of Group B were infected were infected control group. Animals of Group C were treated with Zanil (Oxyclozanide), while animals of Group D were treated with Trematox (Homeopathic medicine).

    The therapeutic efficacy of Zanil and Trematox was compared on the basis of pre and post medication egg counts. The animals used for this study were naturally infected buffaloes (confirmed by faecal examination) Sixty positive and 20 negative cases were selected for the study. The faecal samples were collected directly from rectum of animals.

    Eggs per gram of faces (EPG) and clinical performance were monitored. Faecal samples were examined at zero, 1st, 3rd, 5th, 7th, 10th and 18th day post treatment. Animals which remained positive on 18th day were given a second dose of the respective drug on the same day and their faecal samples were further examined on 21st and 28th day.

    In buffaloes treated with Trematox the efficacy recorded was

    20.45% - 3rd day
    29.54% - 5th day
    40.90% - 7th day
    47.72% - 10th day
    50% - 14th day
    54.54% - 18th day
    56.81% - 21st day
    61.36% - 28th day

    Buffaloes treated with Zanil showed better results than Trematox.

    39.13% - 3rd day
    56.52% - 5th day
    69.56% - 7th day
    78.26% - 10th day
    82% - 14th day
    93.47% - 21st day
    95.65 28th day

    The economic losses due to liver damage recorded were 21.6 million (Rs.) annually in 600 animals. Where as economic loss in terms of decrease in milk production in infected animals was recorded as Rs. 10,800 annually per animal.
