Antibacterial potential from Indian Suregada angustifolia.
J Ethnopharmacol. 2005 Jul 14; 99(3):349-52.JE

Abstract

Phytochemical analysis of the leaves from Indian Suregada angustifolia (Baill. ex Muell. Arg.) Airy Shaw (Euphorbiaceae) resulted in the isolation and identification of six known compounds, viz. friedelin, epi-friedelinol, n-octacosanol, alpha-amyrin, beta-sitosterol and beta-sitosterol-3-beta-D-glucopyranoside. Aqueous (room temperature, boiled and autoclaved) and various solvent (methanol, chloroform and hexane) extracts of leaves were tested against 12 human pathogenic bacteria by the agar well-diffusion method. Aqueous extracts did not express any activity. Antibacterial activity was recorded in the order of methanol, hexane and chloroform extracts. Maximum activity recorded against Staphylococcus aureus (skin infections) in methanol and hexane extracts and moderate activity recorded against diarrhoea causing bacteria, Vibrio vulnificus (hexane extract) and Vibrio cholerae (chloroform extract).
