Abstract

Many herbal remedies have been used in various medical systems for treating and managing various diseases. The weed Sphaeranthus indicus Linn been used in different systems of traditional medicine for the treatment of disorders and diseases in human beings. The antibacterial potential of flower of S.indicus against seven bacterial pathogens cultures was specifically studied with respect to methanolic extract and semi alkaloidal fraction. Preliminary screening of in vitro antibacterial activity of methanolic extract and semi alkaloidal fraction was carried out by the agar well diffusion method. The highest zone of inhibition was measured against K. pneumoniae (18.60 mm), whereas, least in E. coli (13.83mm) at 1000g/ml of MeOHx. K. pneumoniae was sensitive at the highest MIC (8 mg/ml) while lowest in E. coli MIC (4 mg/ml) to the SAF.
