The present study involves the phytochemical screening and anthelmintic investigation of leaf and bark of plant Flueggea virosa (Roxb. ex Willd.) Voigt. The phytochemical analysis of leaf and bark of plant material showed the presence of reducing sugars, terpenoids, cardiac glycosides, flavonoids, saponins, anthraquinones and alkaloids. Anthelmintic activity of plant extract of F. virosa was carried out at four different concentrations 20, 50, 80, 100 mg/ml. Anthelmintic activity was evaluated in terms of time utilized for death and paralysis. All extracts showed significant anthelmintic potential which was dose dependent and compared to standard piperazine citrate.
