The ethanolic extracts of Wattakaka volubilis was examined for in vitro antimicrobial activity. The antimicrobial activity was performed on the extracts of Wattakaka volubilis against human pathogenic bacteria such as E.coli, S.aureus and fungal strain such as A.niger, A.flavus. The results were compared with reference drug ampicillin. The extracts exhibited the growth inhibitory activity in a dose dependent manner.
