Pavonia odorata (Malvaceae) commonly known as sugandhabala was evaluated for anthelmentic activity. Study on alcoholic and aqueous extracts were designed in dose-dependent manner and the parameters observed as paralysis time and death time. The alcoholic extract was found significant when compared with standard drug and more potent than the aqueous extract. Further, it will be interesting to isolate the possible phytoconstituents, which may be responsible for the anthelmintic activity.
