pergularia extensa extracts, albendazole, Pithemera


The main objective of our present study was to screen the presence of different phytoconstituent present in the extract of whole plant of pergularia extensa. The phytoconstituent is analysed by thin layer chromatography by using suitable reagents. The different concentration (10, 20, and 40 mg/ml) of various extract of pergularia extensa has been investigated in bio-assay by using albendazole as reference drug to estimate the time of paralysis and death of the worms. The benzene extract is showed more potent in compare to other extract for paralysis and kill the worms
