Abstract

Inhibition of growth of pathogenic gram positive and gram negative micro organisms exposed to two different isolated components of ethanol extract of Moringa oleifera was used as an index for assessment of its antimicrobial activity. Well diffusion method was used against the Staphylococcus aureus (S.a) Escherichia coli (E.c), Candida albicans and Aspergillus flavus at various concentrations. The two components were active towards both bacterial and fungal stains. Response of the bacterial isolates varied with concentration. For both the components the gram negative Escherichia coli responded more markedly than gram positive Staphylococcus aureus. Aspergillus flavus was more active than Candida albicans.
