Compounds of Pharmacological interest (tannins) were isolated from plant Species Herpestis monneira Linn and were assayed against Urinary Tract bacterial pathogens using agar diffusion method. Tannins exhibited anti bacterial activities against all the tested microorganisms. The present study is aimed at finding out the effect of tannins extracted from Herpestis monniera on Escherichia coli, Proteus mirabilis, Staphylococcus saprophyticus and Klebsiella. Proteus mirablis showed the highest sensitivity pattern followed by Klebsiella, E coli and Staphylococcus saprophyticus.
