The current research to determine the anti-activity of Allium sativum (garlic) on the hepatic fascia parasite, the study included the effect of aqueous extract and ethanolic extract of Allium sativum on the growth and efficacy of fasiolla hepatica cultivated in 50% of sheep red blood cells with 15% dilution agar technique. Halving was counted within 96 hours of growth when inhibiting concentrations (1,1.5,2,2.5) μmg / ml were applied to the plant after drying and obtaining the crude, and then dissolving it in each extract after determining the concentrations separately by following scientific methods. The results revealed that the ethanolic extract had a higher effect than the aqueous extract. Where a high concentration (2.5) for both extracts was observed to inhibit) for ethanolic extract 8± 10 81035.6991x) for the aqueous extract and (8± 10 81046.511x () during 96 hours of growth. 8± 10 81060.000xwhen compared with the control group (We can conclude that medicinal plants can affect microorganisms effectively, even if the proportions differ without affecting the affected host, unlike chemical compounds, and this is what we observed during the research.
