    Antioxidant, Hepatoprotective, and Anthelmintic Activities of Methanol
    Extract of Urtica dioica L. Leaves

    “Anthelmintic activity of the methanol extract was also investigated using adult Indian earth worms (Pheretima posthuma) and the results revealed a dose dependent increase in anthelmintic activity of the extract at 25, 50, and 100 mg/mL concentrations. “

    In the conclusion:
    present study also clearly indicated the traditional ethno
    medical claim of the plant as anthelminthic and also its use
    in hepatopathy. We have already undertaken a further investigation on the isolation and identification of compounds
    related to the antioxidant, hepatoprotective and anthelminthic
    activity in this plant, which may lead to new chemical leads
    with potential for clinical use and further investigation.”
