Medicinal plants are gaining much interest recently, because they used to treat respiratory tract infections. The study on medicinal plants started with extraction procedures. Aqueous, Methanolic and Ethanolic extracts of the eight most popular plants, Alpina calcarata, Andrographis paniculate, Justic adhatoda, Solanum trilobatum, Zingiber officinalis, Pipper longum, Solanum xanthocarpum, Piper nigrum. The extracts of those plants were concentrated by rotary evaporator, and these concentrated samples were subjected to invivo antibacterial assay against three human pathogenic Staphylococcus aureus, Streptoccous sps, and Pseudomonas sps. The efficacy of the samples was tested by bio assay method using the disc diffusion test. Zone of inhibition of the extracts were compared with the standard Ampicillin. The results showed that, the remarkable inhibition of the bacterial growth was shown against the tested organisms in methanolic extraction mainly Alapina calcarata and Andrographis paniculate.

Keywords: Alapina calcarata and Andrographis paniculate,Antibacterial Activity.
