In vitro screening method could offer a preliminary observation which is necessary to select crude plant extract with potentially useful properties for further chemical and pharmacological investigations. The present research work was designed to investigate the natural antimicrobial and bioactive constituents from Ludwigia parviflora (fruit extract). was tested for antimicrobial activity against four bacterial and three fungal pathogens using the well diffusion method with six different solvent extracts of these, ethyl acetate and ethanol extract of L. parviflora showed significant antimicrobial activity against all the tested strains. Bioactive constituents, as revealed by quantitative and qualitative. GC-MS analysis identified the presence of ten bioactive compounds. In conclusion, L. parviflorafruit extracts might be to treat diverse of human diseases and it could be responsible for the discovery of novel therapeutic drugs.
