Abstract

Moringa oleifera is a very useful tree in tropical countries; use to treat different human health problems. It had wide range of antimicrobial properties which have been investigated by a number of studies.water, ethanolic, methanolic and petroleum ether of Moringa oleifera leaf extract were screened for in vitro antibacterial and antifungal activity against selected common human pathogens in Sudan by disc diffusion method.

The extracts showed significant effect on the tested organisms. Water extract showed maximum zone of inhibition against Staphylococcus albus , methanolic extract was only extract showed activity against Pseudomonas aeruginosa , ethanolic extract showed maximum inhibition against Salmonella spp and Yersinia enterocolitica . Petroleum ether extract was the lowest extract showed activity against tested.
