Abstract

ANTI BACTERIAL ACTIVITY OF SOME LOCAL MEDICINAL PLANTS AGAINST S.AUREUS AUREUS AND P.AERUGINOSA

Dr. Asma Waheed Qureshi*, Maria Kamal and Roobi

ABSTRACT

Six medicinal plants including Euphorbia serrata, Cannabis sativa,Trifolium repense, Chenopodium album, Carthamus oxyacantha and Calotropis procera were collected from the district Swabi (Pakistan). Ethanol and water extracts of these locally collected medicinal plants were tested for their anti-bacterial activity against two pathogenic bacteria i.e., Staphylococcus aureus and Pseudomonas aeruginosa. It was observed that different concentrations (100, 200, 300 and 400mg/ml) of ethanol extracts of these medicinal plants possess great antimicrobial activity against the two tested pathogens as compared to same concentrations of their hot water extracts. The antimicrobial activity of tested plants may be due to the presence of some compounds such as phenols, flavonoids, alkaloids, tannins, carotenoids and saponins, etc. having antimicrobial and antioxidant activity.
