In vitro evaluation of anti-bacterial activity of Cordia dichotoma Forst on urinary tract pathogens

The aim of present study was to evaluate the antibacterial activity of Cordia dichotoma Forst on selected urinary tract pathogens. Cordia dichotoma Forst commonly known as Indian cherry belonging to family Boraginaceae is medium sized tree with a short bole and spreading crown. Antibacterial activity of petroleum ether, chloroform, methanol and aqueous extracts against urinary tract pathogens such as Escherichia coli, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Klebsiella pneumoniae, Proteus mirabilis, Staphylococcus aureus and Proteus vulgaris using disc diffusion technique was evaluated. The results of this study showed that the methanol extract exhibited better anti-bacterial activity against the bacterial species tested as compared to other extracts. An effort has been made to compare the activity of extracts with standard antibiotics against selected urinary tract pathogens.
