Petroleum Ether, diethyl ether, chloroform, and alcoholic extract of pericarps of Sapindus emarginatus were evaluated separately for anthelmintic activity on adult Indian earthworms, Pheretima posithuma; the results revealed that the alcoholic extract produced significant anthelmintic activity. The activities are comparable with the reference drug Piperazine citrate.
