    Introduction: Randia dumetorum., (Rubiaceae) is used in folklore medicine for the treatment of various ailments including helminthiasis. Methodology: The anthelmintic potential of different extracts prepared from the fruits of Randia dumetorum, were tested on adult Indian earthworm (Pheretima posthuma). Two concentrations (100 mg/mL and 200 mg/mL) of each extract were used in the experiment, which involved the determination of the time of paralysis and time of death of the worms. Albendazole (10 mg/mL) and distilled water were included in the study as standard reference drug and control, respectively. Results: Among all the extracts tested, the ethanol extract of fruit extracts under investigation showed better anthelmintic activity. Conclusion: The results of the present investigation support the traditional use of the Randia dumetorum as an anthelmintic agent.
