Abstract

Terminalia catappa fruit flesh was used to check anthelmintic potential of hydroalcoholic extract. The paralysis time and death time was checked by this study.  The anthelmintic potential of fruit flesh was checked by preparing its hydroalcoholic extract in a concentration of 20mg/ml, 40mg/ml, and 60mg/ml. The standard drug Albendazole was used to check the anthelmintic potential of  hydroalcoholic extract.  The observations and results suggest that hydroalcoholic extract of Terminalia catappa was found to possess concentration dependent anthelmintic potential on worms (shows better activity with increasing concentration of extract). The hydroalcoholic extract 20mg/ml shows significant activity as compared to the standard drug. The study involves the determination of paralysis time and death time of the worms in different doses of the hydroalcoholic extracts.


Keywords:  Anthelmintic, Hydroalcoholic extract, Albendazole, Time of paralysis, Time of death.
