Title : Antimycobacterial activity of plant molecules from traditional medicinal plants


Tuberculosis (TB) is one of the deadliest infectious diseases in the world. TB is major challenges for medical filed to management disease. Such as, currently occurrence of multidrug-resistant (MDR) and extensively drug-resistant tuberculosis (XDR) are creating problems. Also, currently using TB drugs are getting less effective and giving side effects limiting their use.

Therefore, the present study aimed at studying the isolation of antimycobacterial compounds and tested against Mycobacterium tuberculosis. Isolated compounds inhibited the growth of tested organism. We report here some of the compounds are significantly inhibited the growth of M. tuberculosis. 

Key words: Medicinal plants, Antimycobacterial, Mycobacterium sp.
