ABSTRACT:
In the present study Petroleum ether, chloroform, ethanol and aqueous extract of fruit of Lagenaria siceraria were prepared and antimicrobial activity were studied by agar well diffusion method against pathogenic bacteria and fungus such as Escherichia coli, Staphylococcus griseus, Bacillus macerans, Proteus mirabilis, Aspergillus niger, Aspergillus flavus, Candida albicans. Result shows antimicrobial activity of chloroform extract and absolute alcohol extract against Bacillus macerans, Escherichia coli and Proteus mirabilis. From the investigation, the results confirm the presence of therapeutically potent compound in absolute alcohol extract of bottle gourd. The present study suggests that the fruit extract of Lageneria siceraria can be used in treating diseases caused by the test organisms.
