ABSTRACT:
The aim of the present study was to evaluate the In-vitro antihelmenthic activity of Spirulina Powder. Currently, our understanding on the underlying mechanisms for Spirulina's activities, especially the antihelmenthic, is limited. The Spirulina Powder was taken for anthelmintic activity against Indian earthworm Pheretimaposthuma. The results were expressed in terms of time required for paralysis and death of Pheretimaposthuma. Albendazole was used as a standard control group. Spirulina Powder shows the significant activity at 150 mg/ml concentration.
KEYWORDS:
Spirulina, Pheretimaposthuma, anthelmintic, In-vitro, Albendazole.
