Abstract

The present investigation was undertaken to evaluate the anthelmintic activity of Ethanolic and aqueous extract of Vateriaindica (stem bark) using Indian earthworm Phretimaposthuma.Different concentrations viz. (50, 25 and 12.5 mg/ml) of each Ethanolic and aqueous extracts were used for bioassay, involve determination of time of paralysis (TP) and time of death (TD) of the worms. 1% gum acacia in saline solution and Mebendazole (15mg/ml) were used as control and standard respectively. The result of present study indicates that the crude Ethanolic extract of Vateriaindica significantly demonstrated paralysis, and death of worms a concentration 50mg/ml compared to standard reference Mebendozole.
