Abstract:

The antimicrobial activity of plant extracts (crude extract of leaves) were evaluated against antibiotic-resistant bacteria. Crude extracts of Acacia arabica, Aegle marmelos, Ailanthus excelsa, Alstonia scholaris, Callistemon lanceolantus, Casurina equisitifolia, Catharanthus roseus, Grevellia robusta, Kalanchoe pinnata, Moringa oleifera, Psidium guajava, Saraca indica, Tamarindus indicum, Thuja compacta and Vitex negundo were selected. The plant extracts were tested against the following microorganism: Escherichia coli NCIM 2931, Proteus vulgaris NCIM 2857, Pseudomonas aeroginosa NCIM 5029, Bacillus cereus NCIM 2155, Bacillus subtilis NCIM 2063, Bacillus megaterium NCIM 2087, Klebsiella pneumoniae MTCC 432, Proteus mirabilis MTCC 425, Salmonella typhimurium MTCC 98, Salmonella typhi MTCC 734, Staphylococcus aureus MTCC 96, and Staphylococcus epidermis MTCC 43. Bacteria which were resistant to some common antibiotics (Cephalothin, Cloxacillin, Erythromycin, Gentamicin, Methicillin, Gentifloxacin, Levofloxacin, Oleadomycin, Vancomycin), were found to be susceptible to crude extract of plants studied. Ailanthus excelsa, Casurina equisitifolia, Kalanchoe pinnata, Moringa oleifera and Tamarindus indicum showed significant antimicrobial activity against bacteria studied.
