Abstract

The aim of this study was to evaluate antibacterial activity of the leaves of Bauhinia tomentosa Linn. In the current study, aqueous and ethanolic extracts of leaves of Bauhinia tomentosa were tested against some human pathogenic bacteria. In vitro antibacterial test was performed by disc diffusion method on Mueller Hinton agar medium. Ethanolic extract showed significantly higher inhibitory effect compared to aqueous extract on tested organisms.
