Petroleum ether (60-80°C), chloroform, ethyl acetate, ethanol and aqueous extract of aerial parts of Melothria heterophylla&nbesp Lour. were evaluated separately for anthelmintic activity on adult Indian earthworms (Pheretima posthuma),  using albandazole and piperazine citrate as reference standards. The results indicated that the ethanol extract of M. heterophylla  Lour (EEMH) was more potent than the other four extracts of it.
