This study was carried out to explore the phytochemical analysis and antimicrobial activity of different extracts of Achillea millefolium and Chaerophyllum villosum. Crude methanolic and chloroform extracted samples of Achillea millefolium and Chaerophyllum villosum showed good antibacterial activity against Staphylococcus aureus, Shigella flexneri, Salmonella typhi and Staphylococcus epidermidis. The extracts of both plants showed potent activity against Gram positive bacteria as compared to…

Antimicrobial activity and phytochemical screening of Wrightia tinctoria (Roxb.) R.Br.

TLDR
Preliminary phytochemical analysis of Wrightia tinctoria showed the presence of alkaloids, flavonoids, phenols, saponins, steroids and tannins, which showed potential antibacterial properties of the extracts against the organisms tested.

Report - Screening of medicinally important Berberis lyceum for their antimicrobial activity by disc diffusion assay.

TLDR
The results showed that fractions from both sources revealed different degree of antimicrobial activities, and Escherichia coli, Citorbacter freundii and Candida albicans were more susceptible to crude methanolic extract and the same microbes were resistant to water extracted fractions.

Effects of Methanol Extract of Wedelia chinensis Osbeck (Asteraceae) Leaves against Pathogenic Bacteria with Emphasise on Bacillus cereus

TLDR
The time-kill study suggested that the methanol extract of Wedelia chinensis possessed bactericidal properties at higher concentrations and eradicated the growth of bacterial cells.

Phytochemical Screening and Antimicrobial Activity of Some Medicinal Plants Against Multi-drug Resistant Bacteria from Clinical Isolates

TLDR
Ethanol and methanol extracts were found to be more potent being capable of exerting significant inhibitory activities against majority of the bacteria investigated, and flavonoids and tannins as major active compounds against methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus.

Phytotoxic, Antibacterial and Haemagglutination activities of the aerial parts of Myrsine africana L.

Phytochemical screening and antibacterial activity of different solvent extracted samples of Arisaema jacquemontii.

TLDR
The data suggested that different extracts showed varying degree of growth inhibition against the tested microbes, and n-hexane and ethyl acetate soluble fractions significantly inhibited the growth of all the bacterial strains at the tested concentrations.

Antimicrobial Activity of Cannabis sativa L.

TLDR
The oil of the seeds, petroleum ether and methanol extracts of the whole plant of Cannabis sativa were screened for their antimicrobial activity against two Gram positive organisms, Staphylococcus aureus and two fungi and the results were compared with the activity of the extracts.
