Ficin Latex- EDIT fixed the link

:) I know, I was just too tired to find it last night. There are other posts that can be found by putting in a search here for Ficin Latex. THis was the one from the Rainforest. It sounds potent, I think maybe the enzymes from the fruits would suit me just fine. Megan, from the P. forum did try this though.

I thought this paragraph from your link above was interesting...we are usually told to take HCL to make stomach acid to kill bacterias etc. This is on pg 12.

>>>>As expected, we initially observed no
effects against P. muricola when the papaya latex was given
orally. However, when acid secretion was temporarily
blocked by giving the antacid cimetidine 30 minutes
before the papaya latex, we observed loss of most female
worms, although surprisingly no effect on males [58].
This curious sex bias may just be a question of the available
cuticular surface, since female worms are substantially
larger than males [79], although the surface area/volume
ratio is larger in smaller organisms. It may also reflect
molecular differences in the structural composition of the
cuticles of the two sexes of this species. The observation
that CPs in combination with cimetidine can be made to
express anthelmintic activity in a site where the pH would
normally be too acidic for them to be able to work effectively,
opens the door to other refinements and combination
treatments, although, as yet, this is an unexplored
