Antibacterial Activity of Malotus philippensis Fruit Extract

Shelly Rana, Ved Prakash, Anand Sagar

The antibacterial activity of plant M. philippensis belonging to family, Euphorbiaceae was evaluated in-vitro against some selected human pathogenic microorganisms (Escherichia coli, Yersinia pestis, Pseudomonas aeruginosa and Staphylococcus aureus) following agar-well diffusion method using different concentrations (30%, 50%, 70% and 100%). Two solvents methanol and acetone were used for extraction of different bioactive constituents from fresh fruits. It was concluded from the results that methanolic as well as acetone fruit extracts of M. philippensis were quite effective in inhibiting the growth of Staphylococcus aureus which is a serious human pathogen causing infections in wounds. Therefore, the fruit extracts of this plant can be selected for further investigation to determine their therapeutic potential.
