Abstract: Modern synthetic medicines are very effective in curing diseases but also cause a number of side effects. Crude drugs are less efficient with respect to cure of diseases but are relatively free from side effects. Parasites have been of concern to the medical field for centuries and the helminths considered causing considerable problems for human beings and animals. A large number of medicinal plants are claimed to possess anthelmintic property in traditional systems of medicine and are also utilized by ethnic groups worldwide. Following the folk claims, several medicinal plants have been scrutinized for this activity using various in vitro and in vivo methods. The present review summarizes some important pharmacological and preliminary studies on medicinal plants, products thereof and isolated principles from them, which can be investigated further to achieve lead molecules in the search of novel herbal drugs.
