The antibacterial activity of plant Solanum xanthocarpum belonging to family Solanaceae, was evaluated in-vitro against some selected human pathogenic microorganisms (Escherichia coli, Yersinia pestis, Pseudomonas aeruginosa and Staphylococcus aureus) following agar-well diffusion method using different concentrations (30%, 50%, 70% and 100%). Two solvents methanol and acetone were used for extraction of different bioactive constituents from fresh leaves. It was concluded from the results that methanolic as well as acetone leaf extracts of S. xanthocarpum were quite effective in inhibiting the growth of Staphylococcus aureus which is a serious human pathogen causing infections in wounds. Therefore, the leaf extracts of this plant can be selected for further investigation to determine their therapeutic potential.

Keywords: Solanum xanthocarpum, Leaf extracts, Antibacterial activity, Agar-well diffusion.
