Abstract:
The present study was aimed at the evaluation of in vitro anthelmintic activity of ethanolic leaf extract of Gossypium herbaceum against Indian earthworm Pheretima posthuma. Three concentrations (25 mg/ml, 50 mg/ml, 75mg/ml) were tested and results were expressed in terms of time for paralysis and time of death of worms. In this study Albendazole was used as a standard drug. Ethanolic leaf extract of Gossypium herbaceum showed more significant activity at higher concentrations when compared to standard group (Albendazole).
