Abstract
Multi drug resistant bacteria have been increasing in the world in a more than expected pace. Medical fraternity and researchers are trying their best to find newer antibiotics to fight against such superbugs but not finding newer ones or the process is tedious. Nature has provided many a medicinal plants which may be used as a supplement along with moderately sensitive antibiotics which can eradicate multidrug resistant bacteria. Moringa oleifera leaves and bark extracts have been tested against multi drug resistant bacteria. There is a lacunae here to make use of these plant products and find newer molecules to treat multidrug resistant bacterial infections as the results are encouraging. Moringa oleifera ethanol extracts have shown good zone of inhibition with MRSA (25mm) and Klebsiella Spp. (21mm).
