Ethanolic and aqueous extracts of the flower heads of Artemisia maritima Linn. were evaluated for anthelmintic activity on Indian earthworms Pheritima posthuma, using albendazole as reference standard. The extracts caused paralysis followed by death of the worms at all tested dose levels. Ethanolic extract was found to be more potent than the reference control albendazole. The result supports the traditional claims of Artimisia maritime as a powerful anthelmintic.
