Punica granatum (Pomegranate) plant parts are used traditionaly for the treatment of various disorders such as anthelmintic, antidiebetic and other anctivities. Punica granatum flower extract was used to evaluate the anthelmintic activity. As earthworm (Pheretima posthuma) resembles intestinal parasites, it was selected for in vitro study. The experiment was performed in petri dishes with Pheretima posthuma. For that sterile 7 petri plates were used with different concentration of Punica granatum flower extract (5, 10, 15, 20, 25mg/ml and positive and negative control). The standard drug Albendazole (20mg/ml) was used as positive control while normal saline as negative control.
