Abstract:

The study was to investigate the antibacterial activity of some medicinal plants against Urinary Tract Infection (UTI) causing pathogens. Bacteria isolated from the UTI infected patients were characterized by microscopic, staining and morphological and biochemical evaluations.  Crude extracts of the selected medicinal plants prepared were checking their antibacterial activity against the bacteria isolated from UTI infected patients. The zone of inhibitions was compared with the zone of inhibition of standard antibiotics.  The present study revealed that Allium sativum had remarkable antibacterial activity compared to other plant extracts than the others studied Tridax procumbens and latex of Calotropis gigantea had lowest antibacterial activity.


Keywords: Antibacterial activity, Urinary Tract Infection, Medicinal plants.
