ABSTRACT:
The aim of present study is to determine the anthelmintic activity of crude extracts from leaves of Syzygium cumini and Achyranthes aspera. Anthelmintic activity of crude extracts were investigated against earthworms (Pheretima posthuma) using Albendazole as reference standard. Syzygium cumini leaves were extracted with different solvents like n-Hexane, Benzene, Chloroform and Methanol. Achyranthes aspera were extracted with Alcohol and Water solvents. The results of anthelmintic activity reveals that the methanol, chloroform, n-hexane extracts of Syzygium cumini leaves exhibits better anthelmintic activity, when compared to standard Albendazole .Where as benzene extract of Syzygium cumini leaves exhibit comparatively less anthelmintic activity. Alcohol and water extracts of Achyranthes aspera leaves also exhibit comparative anthelmintic activity to that of standard Albendazole. The present study proves the usefulness of the plants, Syzygium cumini and Achyranthes aspera as potential anthelmintic agents.
