Ethanolic extract of the root part of Bambusa arundinacea was investigated for their anthelmintic activity against Pheritima posthuma. The study involves the determination of paralysis time and death time of the worms in the different doses of the extracts (10, 20 and 50 mg/ml). The extract exhibited significant anthelmintic activity in a dose dependent manner compared to the control. Activity was comparable with the reference standard Pipeazine citrate (15 mg/ml) and Albendazole (10 mg/ml).
