IN VITRO STUDIES OF ANTHELMINTIC ACTIVITY OF LAGENARIA SICERARIAS.L. DEORE, S.S.KHADABADI, K.P. CHITTAM, B.A. BAVISKAR N.D. MATKE, A.R. TODKAR, M.S. KUBADE AND K.V. MOON
Ethanol and aqueous extracts from the fruits of L. siceraria were investigated for their anthelmintic activity against Pheretima posthuma and Ascardia galli. Various concentrations (25, 50, 100mg/mL) of aqueous and ethanolic extracts were tested in the bioassay, which involved determination of time of paralysis and time of death of the worms. Both the extracts exhibited significant anthelmintic activity at highest concentration of 100 mg/mL. Piperazine citrate was included as standard reference and distilled water as control.
