Abstract: The aim of this study was to evaluate anthelmintic efficacy of the Prosopis cineraria (Linn.) Druce bark. Petroleum ether, methanolic and aqueous extracts of the bark were evaluated separately for anthelmintic activity on adult Indian earthworm Pheretima posthuma, using albendazole as reference standard. Time required for the paralysis and death was noted. The results indicated that the methanolic extract was more potent than the petroleum ether and aqueous extract.
