Abstract

Aerial parts of the plant Schleichera oleosa were studied for antibacterial property. Effects of methanolic extracts of Schleichera oleosa  were investigated against drug resistant strains of Escherichia coli, Staphylococcus aureus, Klebsiella pneumoniae, and Salmonella typhii. The antibiotic sensitivity pattern for all the clinical isolates was studied by Bauer-Kirby method. All the clinical isolates obtained were resistant to one or more than one antibiotic. The plant showed great potential as  antibacterial agent.

Keywords
