Methanolic extract of Trianthema decandra was investigated for its antibacterial activity against staphylococcus aureus (NCIM 2079) , Escherichia coli (NCIM 2065) , Bacillus subtilis (NCIM 2063) , Pseudomonas aeruginosa (NICIM 2036)  and Proteus vulgaris (NICIM 2027)  at 100 μg/disc using disc diffusion method. The extract showed significant antibacterial activity and were comparable to Chloramphenicol (30/ μg/disc). Our findings confirm the traditional therapeutic claims for this herb.
