Abstract/Summary

The study was conducted to screen for the presence of antimicrobial activity in Aloe barbadensis Miller. The extracts of the roots and leaves prepared with distilled water, acetone, chloroform and methanol were tested against the test microorganisms Staphylococcus aureus, Escherichia coli, Pseudomonas aeruginosa and Candida albicans using the disc-agar diffusion method. In all of the three trials, no zones of inhibition were noted suggesting the absence of antimicrobial activities in the extracts tested.
