The use of medicinal plants is a universal phenomen on. Every culture on earth has relied on the huge v ariety of natural chemistry found in healing plants for their therape utic properties. All drugs of the past were substan ces with a particular therapeutic action and they were extracted from pla nts. Thus, medicinal plants may define as any plant that may have medicinal use. The objective of the present study w as to evaluate the antibacterial activity of Neem ( Azadirachta indica ) and… Expand
