Anthelmintic activity of Punica granatum and Artemisia siversiana against experimental Infections in mice
Chloroform extracts of stem and root of Punica granatum and Artrmisia siversiana, used in ancient Indian Medicine as anthehnintics, were investigated for any activity.against Syphacia obvelata, Nippostrongylus brasiliense and Hymenolepis nana in vivo. Both extracts were able to eliminate H.nana from mice. Their potency was less as compared to Quinacrine. It is suggested that these drugs should be tried for tapeworm infestations in man and domestic animals.
