  Comparative In vitro Anthelmintic activity of crude extracts of Oxalis species of Indian origin
   

Abstract:

The development of anthelmintic resistance and the high cost of conventional anthelmintic drugs led to the evaluation of medicinal plants as an alternative source of anthelmintics. In the present study, in-vitro experiments were conducted to determine the possible anthelmintic effects of crude ethyl acetate, ethanol and aqueous extracts of aerial parts of Oxalis corniculata and Oxalis latifolia on earthworms Eisenia foetida. Two concentrations of each plant extract were tested and parameters such as paralysis time and time of death of the worms were recorded. Ethyl acetate extract exhibited significant anthelmintic activity at highest concentration of 40mg/ml. Piperazine citrate (10mg/ml) was used as reference standard and normal saline as control. The data were verified as statistically significant by using one way ANNOVA (p<0.05).
