Human and veterinary medicines have not been so well succeeded in order to achieve their goals concerned with the treatment of various types of infections. The antibiotic activity of Punica granatum Linn. (Fresh leaves) extract was evaluated by the agar diffusion method and agar disc diffusion to determine the zone of inhibition. The extract of P. granatum presented potential antibiotic action over all the assayed strains, forming 10 to 36 mm diameter inhibition zones. This paper’s results claim the effectiveness of the extract of P. granatum as a potential antibacterial agent and display the significance of evaluating new substances with antimicrobial potential, which can contribute to alternative therapeutics for medicine.
