Sensitivity of Uropathogenic Bacteria against some Bioactive Compounds of Kalmegha (Andrographis paniculata) and Chirayta (Sweratia chirayta)

Vijaya Gupta [2] | Ashok K. Shukla [12]

Abstract: Present study focused on the sensitivity of some Uropathogenic bacteria against the extracted compounds present in leaves of two most useful medicinal plants Kalmegha (Andrographis paniculata) and Chirayta (Sweratia chirayta), collected during Nov. -Dec 2015, from Rajpur forest (District Ambikapur, Chhattisgarh) located in eastern Surguja range of forest, Chhattisgarh. The Bacteria were isolated from the UTI infected patients and characterized by microscopic, staining, morphological and biochemical methods. Aqueous extracts from plants were prepared and then used to test their antibacterial activity against the bacteria isolated from UTI infected patients and the zone of inhibitions were compared with the zone of inhibition of standard antibiotics. The common antibiotics Including Ciprofloxacin, Chloramphenicol, Amikacin and Ofloxacin were (30g/ml) serve as control. The Uropathogens includes three strains of E. coli ( E. coli strain I, E. coli strain II and E. coli strain III), Enterobacter aerogens, Klebsiella spp. , Proteus mirabilis, pseudomonas aeruginosa and Streptococcus faecalis showed their sensitivity against the compound present in aqueous extract.
