|Department of Parasitology - Research|
The department is involved in research activities like documentation of Ethnoveterinary practices, evaluation of medicinal plants for their anti-parasitic activity, diagnosis of development of resistance against anti-parasitic drugs, development of vaccine for control of avian coccidiosis, and prevalence of parasitic diseases. Research on medicinal plants by this department has revealed a large number of indigenous plants with remarkable anthelmintic and anti-tick activity. Our scientists have also diagnosed the development of resistance in sheep nematodes against commonly used anthelmentics in different areas of Pakistan.
