Abstract:

Bacterial resistance against traditional antibiotics has posed a major problem nowadays and the phytoconstituents present in medicinal plants has the potential to combat bacterial infections. Leaves of Adhathoda vasica plant were screened for its medicinal property. Antibacterial activity was analyzed by preparing its extracts in different solvents like ethyl acetate, methanol and Distilled water (in increasing polaritry). Results obtained were compared with commercial antibiotic Gentamicin (used as control) on gram positive and gram negative bacteria (S. aureus, E. coli, Pseudomonas, Bacillus, S. typhi). The results obtained showed effective results. Different extracts of leaves exhibited varied degree of inhibition against the selected microbes. The best result was observed in ethyl acetate extract (zone of inhibition against E. coli was 27mm). Phytochemical analysis also showed varied percentage of phytoconstituents responsible for the medicinal activity.


Keywords: Adhathoda vasica, Antibacterial activity, Phytoconstituents, Zone of inhibition.
