Abstract Share this page

n the present investigation, the inhibitory effect of crude ethanolic extracts from five plants viz., Artemisia scoparia , Allium sativum, Glycine max, Solanum dulcamara and Venidium decurrens were evaluated against some pathogenic bacterial strains (gram positive and gram negative) using agar disc diffusion method. The ethanolic extracts of all the plants were found to be more or less active against almost all tested pathogenic strains. The inhibition zone and activity index varied in gram positive (IZ= 8mm- 30mm and AI= 0.57-2.5mm) and gram negative bacterial strains (IZ= 7mm- 20mm and AI= 0.46-1.36mm). A.sativum has the highest zone of clearing on S.faecalis (IZ= 30mm and AI= 2.5mm). G.max and V.decurens was found to be the most active plants that exhibited more or less similar activity against all the pathogens tested. The present investigations suggest that the plants studied could be useful for preparation of neutraceuticals as potent antibacterial agent to treat various human diseases and its complications. Key words : Antibacterial activity, arid zone plants, ethanolic extracts
