Author(s): Suresh Kasala, Ramanjaneyulu K, Himabindhu J, Ramesh Alluri and Reddy Raghunath Babu
Abstract: The present study aimed at the in-vitro anthelmintic activity of Methanolic extract of Cyperus rotundus (L) at two different concentrations (20, 50mg/ml). The extract were taken for anthelmintic activity against Indian earthworm Pheretima posthuma. The results were expressed in terms of time required for paralysis and death of Pheretima posthuma. Albendazole is used as a standard control group. Cyperus rotundus shows the significant activity at higher concentrations when compared to a standard control group (Albendazole).
