Abstract

The plant extracts are effective for the various aspects in the field of biology. There has been an increasing interest world-wide on therapeutic values of natural products. The extracts of Trigonella and Phyllanthus are observed to have anti-bacterial and anti-fungal activity. The clinical pathogens showed growth inhibition to the both extracts. The extracts showed inhibition of zone in Staphylococci and E coli. The combined effect was observed to have anti-fungal effect. The extracts were analysed for the anti-oxidant assays which showed fine amount of scavenging of the free radicals in total anti-oxidant capacity and DPPH assay. Thus, the concept will be useful for the treatment of some of the nosocomial infections.


Keywords: Trigonella, Phyllanthus, anti-microbial activity, anti-oxidant activity, nosocomial infection.
