Abstract

Crude extracts of Trigonella foenum-graecum (Leguminoceae) were evaluated for in-vitro anthelmintic activity on the Indian adult earthworms Pheritima posthuma. The seed extracts of Trigonella foenum-graecum had shown a dose dependant inhibition of spontaneous motility (Paralysis) of earthworms. It has been observed that alcoholic extract (60mg/ml) has shown anthelmintic activity, which was compared with albendazole as reference drug. Therefore the seeds could be categorized under anthelmintic herbal drugs and could become a potent key ingredient of such herbal formulation
