Phytochemical Screening and Antibacterial Activities of Oroxylum indicum (Linn.): A Threatened Tree of India
Keywords:Antimicrobial, Inflammation, Oroxylum indicum, Phytochemical
Oroxylum indicum belongs to the family Bignoniaceae. It is used as a traditional medicine from a very long time and because of over exploitation comes under threatened category. It is traditionally used against inflammation and bacterial infections. Keeping this in view, an attempt has been made to evaluate its pharmacological value through phytochemical analysis and antibacterial activities against four pathogenic bacteria. Results revealed that leaf and fruit extracts are rich in diverse types of bioactive compounds and showed inhibition potential against selected microbes. The present study highlights the importance of pharmacological potential of O indicum against antimicrobial resistance.
