ABSTRACT:
The present study was undertaken to determine inhibitory activity of leaf and flower extracts of Quisqualis indica against clinical isolates of Staphylococcus aureus. Agar well diffusion assay was performed to determine antibacterial activity. Among extracts, the flower extract has shown marked inhibition of S. aureus isolates. It can be concluded that the leaf and flower extracts possess inhibitory components. The bioactive components present in the plant are to be separated and subjected for antibacterial activity.
