The results of the preliminary pharmacological study of a concentrated hydroalcoholic extract from the fruits of Bromelia pinguin L. ("piña de ratón") by simple and reliable bioassays are presented. The toxicity against Artemia salina Leach, which was very low, was determined. The anthelmintic activity against Lombricus terrestri was proved with remarkable results. No activity of the extract against the strains of fungi and bacteria was observed.
