  author={Subrata Kumar Biswas and A. K. Azad Chowdhury and Joysree Das and Utpal Kumar Karmakar and Manik Chandra Shill and Sheikh Zahir Raihan},
In the present work, the ethanol extract of the barks of Phyllanthus acidus L. (Family: Euphorbiaceae) were investigated for preliminary phytochemical screening, cytotoxicity and antibacterial activities. The presence of phytochemical constituents was identified by characteristic changes using standard procedure. Brine shrimp lethality (BSL) bioassay was used to investigate the cytotoxic effects and the agar disc diffusion method was used for antimicrobial assay of the plant extract. The…
