Abstract

Objective: To study the anthelmintic activity of Artabotrys hexapetalus (Linn.f) leaves. Materials and Methods: The extraction was made using the hydroalcohol with soxhlet extraction system. The hydroalcoholic extract of varying concentration was used for conducting anthelmintic activity (12.5, 25, 50 and 100 mg/ml). Eudrilus eugeniae (African adult earthworm) was used as the test organism. Result: The time of paralysis and death of the earthworms, the positive control (albendazole) was more effective and no effect was shown by the hydroalcoholic extract of varying concentrations. Conclusion: Hydroalcoholic extract of Artabotrys hexapetalus, didn't show any anthelmintic activity at the concentration of 12.5, 25, 50 and 100 mg/ml.

Key words: Albendazole, Eudrilus eugeniae, hyroalcohol, soxhlet extraction
