K. Salkar*, C. Chotalia and R. Salvi

ABSTRACT

Objective: The aim of our study was to evaluate the anti-bacterial potential of a plant extract to develop further a plant based anti-bacterial agent. Methods: Ochrocarpus longifolius was studied for its Antibacterial potential. Seven different extracts of this plant were tested by agar-dilution method to obtain MIC values. The plant was tested against standard strains, clinical isolates of S.aureus and MRSA strains. Results: MIC value in the range of 1 to 4 mcg/ml was obtained for the plant extracts. Similar type of activity was obtained for clinical isolates and MRSA strains of S.aureus. Conclusion: Ochrocarpus longifolius possess potent antibacterial activity and can be developed further into a new antibacterial agent.
