Antibacterial Screening on Leaves of Argyreia Cymosa Roxb. Against Pathogenic Bacteria Isolated from Infected Pateints Samples Wound, Sputum and Stool
Keywords:Argyreia cymosa, Aqueous extract, Pathogens, Antibacterial activity.
The present study deals with the aqueous leaf extract and synthesized silver nanoparticle of Argyreia cymosa (Roxb) were evaluated for antibacterial activity. The aqueous leaf extract and synthesized nanoparticle of Argyreia cymosa is active against E. coli, P. aeruginosa, Bacillus and S. aureus. The aqueous leaf extract showed maximum activity against Bacillus (20mm), S.aureus (18mm), P. aeruginosa (13mm) E.coli (12mm) and the synthesized silver nano particle showed maximum activity against Bacillus (27mm), E. coli (21mm) , S. aureus (12mm) and P. aeruginosa (11mm).
