Abstract:
Medicinal plants have played a vital role in drug production. Using plant extracts directly has proved to be risk-free. In the current studies, Crude  extracts of Carallumafimbriata stem were used to investigate its antibacterial activity along with their phytochemical screening .Antibacterial assay was carried out by agar disc diffusion technique. Zones of inhibition around the bacterial colonies showed the antibacterial properties of plant extract. Extracts of Caralluma fimbriyata stem were effective against all test organisms Escherichia coli,  Proteus sppPseudomonas sppBacillus  and  Staphylococcus aureus. The inhibitory effect was compared to standard antibiotic gentamycin. The preliminary phytochemical screening showed that the whole plant was rich in alkaloid, flavanoid, tannin, sterols, saponin, carbohydrate, tannin, oil and fat, aminoacid, protein, gum and mucilage.
