Abstract: Haemonchosis is a serious parasitic disease which generates significant economic deficits worldwide. Alternative therapies based on herbal products have shown promising results. On this basis, Aloe vera Lynn extract stands out and was the aim to evaluate its anthelmintic potential on Haemonchus contortus free life-cycle stages by in vitro assays. Results evidenced the presence of alkaloids, catechins, phenols, steroids and tannins, EC50 of 45.59±0.88 mg/mL, LD50 on Artemia salina Leach of 1,814μg/mL, dose-dependent Haemonchus contortus egg hatchability inhibition beyond 90% at 50 and 100 mg/mL (p<0.05), and the extract inhibited larval development up to 76% at 100 mg/mL. It was evident the potent Aloe vera Lynn antiparasitic activity, confirmed by the presence of secondary metabolites with nematicidal potential. Novel studies must be performed seeking to maximize the product effectiveness and subsequently test it in vivo.
