Abstract

The anthelmintic activity of the various extracts (Petroleum ether, chloroform, Ethanol, and Aqueous) of Zizyphus oenoplia (L.) Mill roots were evaluated on Indian adult earth worm Pheretima posthuma. All the extracts caused paralysis followed by death of the worms at all tested doses. Chloroform extract exhibited more potent anthelmintic activity compared to other extracts and also found to be potent as reference standard albendazole.
