The screening of the extracts antibacterial effect was carried out by determining the zone of inhibition using paper disc (6 mm in diameter, Whatman No. 1) diffusion method ( ). MRSA, methicillin resistant Staphylococcus aureus; PA, Pseudomonas aeruginosa; SC, Salmonella choleraesuis and BS, Bacillus subtilis. Streptomycin showed 20, 20, 23 and 23 mm inhibition towards MRSA, PA, SC and BS, respectively.
