In the present study Sewage effluent samples were collected from in and around the Bangalore city and clinical bacterial pathogens like Staphylococcous aureus, Escherichia coli, Klebsiella sps were isolated from clinical samples collected from hospitals. The in vitro efficacy of isolated lytic specific phages was determined by spectrophotometric method. The Optical density decreases after 40mins. The host specific Phages showed maximum lytic activity against specific bacteria. The research outcome of this work has been initiated to expose the potential application of bacteriophage in bio control agent clinically pathogenic bacteria.

Keywords: Antibiotic resistance, Bacteriophage, Sewage and lytic activity.
