Abstract

Leaves of two plant extracts from Leucas aspera and Anisomeles malabarica are studied for their therapeutic activity. These plants have been evaluated for antibacterial property against Bacillus cereus and Pseudomonas aeruginosa. The plant extracts showed low antibacterial effects on the selected microbes. However, the methanol leaf extracts showed significant antibacterial activity. The determination of anticancer activity showed that the plants are poor in substances with appreciable therapeutic potential.
