Antibacterial activity pf various parts (stem, leaf and fruits) of solvent extracts (petroleum ether, alcohol and acetone) of Solanum xanthocarpum  against Escherichia coli, Klebsiella pneumoniae, Salmonella typhi  and Bacillus cereus  were detected by zone of inhibition. The extracts of Solanum xanthocarpum  showed high sensitivity to Kiebsiella pneumoniae  and Salmonella typhi,  moderate sensitivity to Escherichia coli  and less sensitivity and resistant to Bacillus cereus.  In control, there is no inhibitory zone observed.
