The therapeutic efficacy of various antitrypanosomal drugs viz. diminazine aceturate, isometamedium chloride HCl and quinopyramine sulphate alone or in combination with vitamin E (antioxidant) were evaluated in naturally infected equines with T. evansi. Evaluation was done on the basis of alterations in the hemato-biochemical, oxidative stress parameters and percent recovery assessment on day 0 pretreatments, day 7th and day 14th post treatment. It can be infer from present study that all three drugs alone or along with vitamin E were effective against the trypanosomosis in equines but the extent of improvement in terms of hemato-biochemical values, oxidative stress parameters and percent recovery was observed maximum in the treatment with diminazine aceturate with vitamin E followed by isometamidium chloride hydrochloride with vitamin E and least with the quinapyramine sulphate. Therefore, the order of comparative therapeutic efficacy of anti-trypanosomal drugs in the present study has been found as diminazene aceturate with vitamin E, maximally effective followed by isometamidium chloride HCL with vitamin E and Quinapyramine sulphate was found to be least effective. Hence, diminazine aceturate along with vitamin E (antioxidant) could be successfully used in the treatment of equine trypanosomosis.
