The in vitro antitrypanosomal activity of the aqueous extract of Brassica oleracea, was investigated in Trypanosoma brucei brucei 'Lafia' strain. The extract was found to be effective by immobilizing the trypanosomes within the 3-h incubation period and thereafter rendering them not infective to mice.
