  This study was designed to examine the efficacy of various organic extracts derived from the leaves of Pongamia pinnata (L.) Pierre (Fabaceae) for antibacterial potential against some representative food spoilage and food-borne pathogenic bacteria. The organic extracts of chloroform, ethyl acetate and methanol, at a concentration of 2500 μg/mL, exhibited a promising antibacterial effect against Bacillus subtilis ATCC6633, Staphylococcus aureus ATCC6538, Listeria monocytogenes ATCC19118, L. monocytogenes ATCC19166, Pseudomonas aeruginosa ATCC6432 and Salmonella typhimurium ATCC2512. The zones of inhibition of various leaf extracts against the tested bacterial pathogens were found in the range of 8.1 to 18mm, along with their respective MIC values, ranging from 125 to 1000 μg/mL. The chloroform, ethyl acetate and methanol extracts displayed significantly higher antibacterial activity as compared to streptomycin. The results of this study suggest that P. pinnata may have potential use in food industry as an antimicrobial agent, as well as pharmaceutical interest.

  This study evaluated the in vivo immunomodulatory activities of the aqueous extract of Caesalpinia bonducella Fleming (Caesalpiniaceae) seeds. C. bonducella is a plant widely used in the traditional medicinal systems of India. In the present investigation, the aqueous extract of C. bonducella seeds was tested for its effect on cell mediated and humoral components of the immune system in rats. Administration of C. bonducella seed extract produced an increase of 93.03 ± 4 mean hemagglutinating antibody (HA) titer and a change of 0.56 ± 0.058 mm in delayed type hypersensitivity (DTH) as compared to control at a dose of 400 mg/kg body weight. Thus, the results of this study indicate that C. bonducella extract could be a promising immunostimulatory agent.
