Abstract

Plants of 28 families, selected on the basis of medicinal folklore reports and literature data, were studied in a screening program. Aqueous extracts of plants used externally for the treatment of infected skin lesions were tested for their antibacterial potential. The results indicated that about 60% of the plant extracts tested exhibited some level of antibacterial action.
