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.
