ABSTRACT:
Objective: To investigate Anthelmintic Activity of the Chloroform and Aqueous Extracts of leaves of Couroupita guianensis on Pheretima posthuma by Worm Motility Assay Method Methods: The Anthelmintic activity of the Aqueous and Chloroform Extracts of Leaves of Couroupita guianensis on Pheretima posthuma by Worm Motility Assay Method and the results were compared for the both extracts. Anthelmintic activity is compared with standard drug Albendazole. Results: The chloroform extract showed better anthelmintic activity at a concentration of 200 mg/ml, whereas the aqueous extract also showed paralysis and death at similar concentrations against Indian earth worms. The other test concentrations of both the extracts showed marked degree of anthelmintic activity. The anthelmintic effect of extracts is comparable with that of the effect produced by the standard drug albendazole. Conclusion: From the above finding concluding that, the plant possesses significant anthelmintic activity at 200 mg/ml concentration measured by time taken for paralyse / death of the earth worms. The current investigation leads to conclusion that the leaves of Couroupita guianensis have potent anthelmintic activity when compared with the conventionally used drug
