- ... Few anthelminthic drugs are available for human use despite the significant burden caused by helminth infections. We studied the activities of mangostin, a major bioactive xanthone isolated from the pericarp and fruit of Garcinia mangostana and of the synthetic derivative mangostin diacetate. Mangostin and mangostin diacetate lacked activity against the nematodes Heligmosomoides polygyrus (third-s ...
