Abstract:

Antibiotic resistance remains the serious concern to the global health. Antibiotic are becoming less effective against various pathogenic organism. The present study was aimed to evaluate antibacterial efficacy of Leaf, Flower and bark of Moringa oliefera (Drumstick).This result shows methanolic extracts of leaf had best zone of inhibition against E.coli and Streptococcus pneumonia and the most susceptible bacteria was found to be S. aureus pseudomonas Ethyl acetate extract of bark against Pseudomonas showed better result than other solvent (12mm). Zone of inhibition of petroleum ether and ethyl acetate extract of flower shows better zone against Streptococcus pneumoniae. Hence it proves that selected part of Moringa oleifera contains bioactive components which are antibacterial in nature.


Keywords: Drumstick, phytochemicals, Antimicrobial resistance
