Abstract:

Ethanolic extract of medicinal plant, Azadirachta indica was prepared from the aerial parts selected from the leaves. The activity of the extract was tested using bacteria of three genera (Staphylococcus aureas, streptococcus pyogenes and Escherichia coli). The activity of the extract combined with conventional antibiotics and the micro organisms was also tested.
The tube and plate dilution methods were employed, whereby the plate method was used as a confirmatory test method.
The synergistic effects of the Neem tree extracts and the conventional antibiotic varied depending on the concentration and the micro organisms used.  It is concluded that carefully guided extraction and characterization of the plant compound may yield useful antibiotic active principles.
