This study aimed to determine the lysis of Ascaris lumbricoides eggs after administration of 70% Ethanol Extract of Red Ginger (Zingiber officinale var rubrum). The method used in this research is a laboratory experiment. The results showed that at a concentration of 5% within 45 minutes there was no color change and there was no damage to the eggs of Ascarias lumbricoides, while at concentrations of 10% and 15% within 45 minutes it could cause changesĀ in the color of the eggs and could lyse the eggs of Ascarias lumbricoides.
