The present study was intended to delineate the Anti Helminthis and Molluscicidal activity of Momordica dioica fruit extract. The crude extract was obtained by the employment of Soxhlet extraction method. The extract was used to screen the antagonistic activity in vitro by taking Pheretima posthumous and Indoplanorbis exustus as the study subjects. The results obtained proved the capability of extract to downregulate the biological activities of subjects. Mortality was induced by varying concentrations (100-1000 ppm/ml). Interestingly the antagonistic activity was in direct proportional with the extract administrated. The analysis of phyto-constituents revealed that the extract is composed of polyphenols, Saponins, Flavonoids etc. Therefore, it is assumed that the biological activities are complimented by the phyto-components. The results obtained from the current studies can be further exploited in the field nutraceuticals.

Keywords: Anti Helminthis, Molluscicidal, Momordica dioica, Pheretima posthumous, Indoplanorbis exustus.
