Achyranthes bidentata Blume belonging to the family Amaranthaceae was investigated for antibacterial activity against Bacillus subtilis (NCM-2439), Staphylococcus aureus (NCIM-2492), Pseudomonas aeruginosa (NClM-2053) and Escherichia coli (NCIM-2068) organisms, using agar diffusion method. The petroleum ether, chloroform, methanol and aqueous extracts showed significant antibacterial activity. Our findings offer experimental support to the therapeutic claimson this herb as useful against bacterial infections.
