Abstract:

The in vitro anthelmintic activity of crude methanolic extracts of the leaves Talinum portulacifolium (Forssk.) Asch. Ex Schweinf on the Indian adult earthworms Pheritima posthuma was investigated. The time the earthworms took to become paralyzed and die was calculated from the test results using the standard medicine albendazole suspension. The study found that Talinum portulacifolium (Forssk.) Asch. Ex Schweinf leaf extracts exhibited considerable anthelminthic action in a dose-dependent reduction of earthworm’s spontaneous death.
