Water extract of two concentration of Sadhakuppai chooranam (90 and 180mg) was tested against the nematode Ascaris lumbricoides and the results were expressed in terms of paralysis and mortality of worms. The drug Piperazine citrate 10mg was used as standard reference drug for this study. The results were statistically analysed by‘t test’.
