ABSTRACT:
The present study was carried out to screen and evaluate antimicrobial activity of leaf extract of Passiflora foetida. Aqueous extract of leaves of Passiflora foetida was tested against Escherichia coli, Staphylococcus aureus, Bacillus spp., Pseudomonas aeruginosa which are known to be resistant to various antibiotics. A Passiflora foetida material which was used during this study collected from Kolhapur district. In this study, we examined the in-vitro effect of extracts of Passiflora foetida on Escherichia coli, Staphylococcus aureus, Bacillus spp., Pseudomonas aeruginosa. Aqueous extracts was prepared from fresh Passiflora foetida leaves. The susceptibility of tested bacteria to extract was determined by measuring the diameter of inhibition zones formed around well in plate. The results showed that the Passiflora foetida leaves possess antimicrobial activity.
