Glycyrrhiza glabra is very well known medicinal plant used in Ayuveda. The present study was conducted to evaluate the in vitro antibacterial properties of roots of G. glabra against multidrug resistant clinical isolates of E. coli. The antibacterial activity was carried out with agar well diffusion method. The results of the study revealed that ethanol extract has broad spectrum and strong activity than aqueous extract and ether extract. Its effectiveness against drug resistant bacterial pathogens provides hope that it can serve as an alternative therapeutic agent to treat many diseases.
