Abstract

Whole plant methanolic extract of Ocimum sanctum was studied for their phytochemical and antibacterial activities. Antimicrobial activity of extract was detected against some common microbial pathogens. Methanolic extract of Ocimum sanctum exhibited antibacterial activity against Enterococcus faecalis, Enterobacter cloacae, Escherichia coli, Proteus vulgaris, Klebsiella pneumoniae, Staphylococcus aureus and Staphylococcus saprophyticus. Methanolic extract of Ocimum sanctum showed strong antibacterial activity against Staphylococcus aureus and Staphylococcus saprophyticus. The minimal inhibitory concentrations for all tested strains were at concentrations ranging from 10.19±0.08mg/ml to 32.02±1.98 mg/ml. Phytochemical analysis of active extracts demonstrated the presence of common phytoconstituents like tannins, glycosides, saponins, flavonoids and alkaloids. These phytochemical established a good support to the use of this plant in herbal medicine and as a base for the development of new drugs, phytomedicine and might be aid in the treatment of UTI.

Keywords: Antimicrobial, indigenous medicine, Agar diffusion, UTI.
