Abstract

To evaluate antimicrobial activities of aqueous from, Acetone, Petroleum ether, Methanol, D/W, Dimethylformamide, Dimethyl Sulfoxide extract of Plant Gymnema sylvestre (G. sylvestre) leaves and Steam.

The antimicrobial screening of extract G. sylvestre against common microbes like Bacillus cereus (B. cereus), Escherichia coli (E. coli), by agar well diffusion method, where MIC, MBC, MFC was carried out. The aqueous and Methanol leaf and steam extract showed significant antibacterial activities against the selected microorganisms and were compared to the standard antibiotic respectively.

The leaves of G. sylvestre might represent a new antimicrobial source with stable, biologically active components that can show a scientific base for the use in modern medicine.
