Abstract:

Antimicrobial activity of ethanolic and methanolic extract of Artocarpus lakoocha Wall. ex Roxb. bark were evaluated against five oral inhabiting bacteria i.e., Escherichia coli (ATCC 8739), Streptococcus mutans (ATCC 25175), Streptococcus sanguinis (ATCC 10556), Porphyromonas gingivalis (ATCC 33277) and Fusobacterium nucleatum (ATCC 25586) at different concentration by using agar well diffusion method. The test extract was found to be bacteriostatic in action, thus can be used as a source of antibiotic substances for drug development and in the control of these bacterial infections.
