Despite number of allopathic medicines, the infectious diseases are burning issues due to Aniti-microbial Resistance (AMR). Therefore, need to screen new source from biowealth. Keeping this in view, an attempt has been made to qualitative analysis of bioactive compounds; evaluate the antibacterial activity against Gram positive bacteria (Streptococcus pyogens) and estimation of toxicity to Artemia salina. The results revealed that fruit extracts rich with phenolic compounds. The MIC (Minimum Inhibitory Concentration) was done using Broth Dilution Assay and it was observed that methanol extract of Ventilago denticulata (Fruits) showed an excellent activity against S. pyogens. It was noted that methanol extract showed 80% inhibition after 24 hrs against brine. The present study highlights the antibacterial potential of common plant of Odisha and recommended to isolate the responsible compound(s) to formulate new drugs to fight against AMR.
