Assessment of anthelmintic activity of Jussiaea hyssopifolia G. Don

The escalating pervasiveness of anthelmintic resistant strains of helminths, drug residues in animal products and high cost of conventional anthelmintics has created an interest in studying medicinal plants as an alternative source of anthelmintics. The plant “Jussiaea hyssopifolia” have great medicinal value and reported as astringent, carminative, laxative and diuretic properties. The methanolic extract of entire plant Jussiaea hyssopifolia were screened for anthelmintic activity on Pheretima posthuma (earth worm) in comparison to reference standard Albendazole. A significant anthelmintic effects were observed on live adult Pheretima posthuma worms in terms of the paralysis and death of the worms at different concentrations.
