Anthelmintic potential of certain ethano medicinal plants of Uttarakhand State, India


In the present study, ethanolic extract of ethano medicinal plants Anemone vitifolia and Aegle marmelos available in Garhwal Himalaya region of Uttarakhand was investigated for their anthelmintic potential using Eudrilus euginea as a test worm.Various concentrations ( 10, 50,100mg/ml)of the ethanolic extract of Anemone vitifolia roots and Aegle marmelos fruits were tested in a bioassay ,which involves determination of time of paralysis (P) and time of death (D) of the worm. Both the plant extracts were able to show activity but Anemone vitifolia were found more active then Aegle marmelos, when compared to the standard drug piperazine citrate ( 10 mg/ml).
