Evaluation of antibacterial activity of plant extracts against bacterial pathogen

The aim of the study was to evaluate the antibacterial activities of twenty-five plant extracts against five bacteria strains. The tested plant extracts showed variation in zone of inhibition. The highest antibacterial potentials were observed from the extracts of Acacia catechu which showed highest zone of inhibition in all bacteria followed by Terminalia bellerica, Boswellia serrata, Aloe vera and Mimosa pudica. The antibacterial activity observed in plants are indicative of the methanol plant extracts of these plants could be a possible source to obtain new and effective herbal medicines to treat infections, hence justified the ethic use of species against various infectious diseases.
