Present study reports anthelmintic activity of various extracts of the bark of Spondias Pinnata against Indian earthworms Pheritima posthuma. The results revealed that all the tested extracts of Spondias Pinnata bark possess anthelmintic activity in a dose dependant manner. Potency of the test samples was found to be inversely proportional to the time taken for paralysis/death of the worms. The activities were comparable with the reference drug piperazine citrate. Among the tested extracts, the chloroform extract was found to possess promising anthelmintic activity in comparison to other extracts. The present study therefore justifies its use in the folklore remedies as an anthelmintic drug of natural origin.



Anthelmintic, Spondias Pinnata, Pheritima posthuma, Piperazine citrate.
