ABSTRACT
Preliminary phytochemical screening and evaluation of in vitro antimicrobial activity of aerial parts of methanolic extract of the traditional medicinal herb, Cissus setosa were carried out. The results of the study report the presence of almost all major secondary metabolites except alkaloids in the extract. The strong antibacterial inhibition was noted against the gram positive bacteria, Micrococcus luteus (10 mm / 500 µg of sample) and strong antifungal inhibition was noted against the species, Candida parapsilopsis (10 mm / 1500 µg of sample).
