The antibacterial activity of aqueous, ethanolic, methanolic, ether, acetone, chloroform and hexane extracts from Enicostema littorale plant has been evaluated, in vitro, against Serrasia sp., Escherichia coli, Pseudomonas aeruginosa and Staphylococcus aureus. All extracts of Enicostema littorale exhibited highest antibacterial activity against Sarrasia sp and P. aeruginosa followed by very less activity against E. coli and S. aureus. The results indicate that Enicostema littorale plant may be a good candidate as antimicrobial agent.
