The different extracts of Cassia fistula Linn root were evaluated for antibacterial and antitubercular activities against different Gram-positive, Gram-negative bacterial strains and M. tuberculosis H37Rv strain using ciprofloxacin, norfloxacin and isoniazid as standard drugs, respectively. Alcoholic extract showed significant activity against Bacillus subtilis, while this extract was found to show moderate activity against Escherichia coli. Alcoholic extract also showed good antitubercular activity. The presence of alkaloids and tannins in alcoholic extract could be attributed for the antibacterial and antitubercular activities.
