Four fractions of petroleium ether extract of the leaves of Lantana camara in different solvents showed significant antibacterial activity against some human pathogens under in vitro conditions. The MIC of the methanol fraction, containing triterpenoids, active against these pathogens was found to be comparable with those of some thereapeutically used antibiotics.
