Abstract

COMPARATIVE ANTHELMINTIC ACTIVITY OF SARACA ASOCA (ROXB.) WILD BARK AND CARICA PAPAYA LINN LEAVES

Manali M. Bhide* and Sachin A. Nitave

ABSTRACT

The aim of the present study was to evaluate comparative anthelmintic activity of alcoholic & aqueous extracts of bark of Saraca Asoca (Roxb.) wild and alcoholic & aqueous extracts of Carica papaya Linn leaves on Indian earthworm (Pheretima posthuma) at concentration. Results were expressed in terms of time for paralysis and time for death of worms. Albendazole was used as a standard and Distill water as a control group. The result revealed that both bark of Saraca Asoca (Roxb.) wild & Carica papaya Linn leaves possesses anthelmintic activity. But leaves extracts of Carica papaya Linn has better activity than bark of Saraca Asoca (Roxb.) wild extracts. The presence of alkaloids, glycosides, saponins, flavanoids, terpenoids, tannins seems to be the responsible phytoconstituents for demonstrating anthelmintic activity.

Keywords: Anthelmintic, Pheretima posthuma, Saraca Asoca, Carica Papaya, alcoholic, Albendazole.
