5 Abstract Successive solvent extract viz., petroleum ether, chloroform, benzene, methanol, ethanol and water extracts of Medicago sativa (Alfalfa(Medicago sativa)also called Lucerne, is naturally high in many essential vitamins and minerals, including A, D, E, K, and even the full family of B vitamins; biotin, calcium, folic acid, iron, magnesium, potassium and many others, as well as being very high in protein, especially when dried. It is "The king of all foods"!)was evaluated for antibacterial (to kill or eradiacate bacteria)activity, against seven important bacterial strains by agar-well diffusion method. Methanol extract showed significant activity against all the tested bacteria followed by chloroform and ethanol extract. Benzene and Petroleum ether extracts did not show any significant activity. The antibacterial activity is more significant in solvent extracts compared to aqueous extract in all the plants indicating that the active principle responsible for antibacterial activity is more soluble in organic solvents. The results suggest that Medicago sativa is scientifically validate the use of this plant in the traditional medicine for isolation and characterization of the active principle for further exploitation in medical microbiology.


6 Summary The results of the present study support thetraditional use of the Medicago sativa as anethnomedicine. It also suggests that the tannins isolatedfrom the Medicago sativa possess remarkableantimicrobial activity against microbial pathogens.
