Abstract
The aim of this study was to examine the antimicrobial activity of Aristolochia tagala leaf extract with different solvents namely Acetone, Chloroform, Ethanol, Methanol and aqueous against few pathogenic bacteria and fungi. For the antibacterial activity of leaf extract of the target plant, the disc diffusion assay was used against two gram-positive bacterial strains, viz., Staphylococcus lentus and Bacillus cereus and one gram-negative bacterial species Serratia marcescens and three fungal species such as Candida albicans, Candida dubliniesis and Cryptococcus neoformans. The patterns of inhibition varied with the plant extracts, the solvent used for extraction and the organisms tested.
