Helminthiasis is an infection of the human body with parasitic worm such as roundworms, earthworms, hookworms, flukes, tapeworms and pinworms. The worms usually only involve the intestinal tract but sometimes they may invade other organs. The present study was done with the aim to evaluate the anthelmintic activity of formulated polyherbal syrup containing traditionally used herbs like Neolamarckia cadamba and Alstonia scholaris using adult earthworms Eisenia foetida against albendazole as standard reference and normal saline as control. The time to achieve paralysis of the worms was determined.
