. Preliminary pharmacological screening with crude extract of Cucurbita maxima seeds revealed that it produces positive inotropic effect on frog heart and a slight transient rise in mean arterial blood pressure in dog which was not dose dependent.Study of electrocardiogram in dog revealed elevation of SQQRSSQ complex and decrease in heart rate. The extract as well as the powdered seeds of C. maxima were found to be least effective against Raillietina cesticillus in domestic fowl.
