ABSTRACT:
Ethyl alcohol and aqueous extract of Mussaenda frondosa were investigated for their anthelmintic activity against Pheretima posthuma, Raillietina spiralis ,Ascaridia galli. Three concentrations (10, 25, 50 mg/ml) of each extract were studied in activity, which involved the determination of time of paralysis and time of death of the worm. Piperazine citrate (10 mg/ml) was used as reference standard and distilled water as control. The result shows that ethyl alcohol and aqueous extract posses anthelmintic activity.
KEYWORDS:
Mussaenda frondosa, Anthelmintic activity, Vermicidal, Phytoconstituents.
