In the current study we aimed to evaluate the antimicrobial activity of solvent extracts bark of Cipadessa baccifera (Roth.) Miq. The plant samples for investigation were collected from Thavarekere and Savandurga, Magadi Taluk, Bengaluru Rural district, and outskirts of Bengaluru, and identification was authenticated by National Ayurveda and Dietetics Research Institute, Bangalore; vide voucher specimen number, RRCBI-8971. The dried bark samples were pulverized in an electric blender and the powdered material was stored in air tight containers for further analyses. The bark samples were subjected to sequential extraction using Soxhlet apparatus, and extracted exhaustively in organic solvents such as, hexane, chloroform, methanol and water. The sequential extracts of bark of C. baccifera (Roth) Miq. were subjected to evaluation of antimicrobial activity against diarrhoea, skin, wound and oral infections causing selected pathogens, including 07 Gram positive, 06 Gram negative bacteria and 06 fungal strains. Results discovered that the solvent extracts of bark of C. baccifera exhibited significant anti-bacterial activity against Escherichia coli, Bacillus cereus, Propionibacterium acnes, Streptococcus gordonii and Corynebacterium diphtheriae. Furthermore, solvent extracts of the bark showed anti-fungal activity against Candia glabrata and Fusarium.
