ABSTRACT
Cipadessa baccifera Miq., and Melia dubia (Cav.) (Meliaceae) are common medicinal plants found in Western Ghats and are used traditionally for various purposes. The solvent extracts of the leaves and primary fractions of the tested plants were used for their anti-microbial properties following the disc diffusion method against human pathogens. The chloroform extract of C. baccifera and petroleum ether extract of M. dubia were the most effective. Cipadessa chloroform fraction 4 and Melia petroleum ether fraction 2 exhibited maximum zone of inhibition for almost all the pathogens tested.
