The present study was undertaken to evaluate anthelmintic activity of methanolic extract of irradiated and unirradiated Citrus medica fruit bio-mass belonging to Rutaceae family using Pheretima posthuma as test worms. Various concentrations (10-50 mg/ml) of methanolic extracts were tested in the bioassay, which involved determination of time of paralysis (P) and time of death (D) of the worms. Piperazine citrate was taken as standard reference and distilled water as control. The results of present study indicated that the unirradiated extract significantly demonstrated paralysis and death of worms in less time as compare to radiated sample at higher concentration of 50 mg/ml.
