  Background: The most commonly used plant namely Onosma khyberianum was brought under antimicrobial study after observing their medicinal values. The present study aim to assess antimicrobial activity of ethanolic extracts and subsequent solvent soluble fractions of Onosma khyberianum against five bacterial strains Salmonella typhi, Shigella dysenteriae, Escherichia coli, Staphylococcus aureus, Vibrio cholerae and three fungal strains Aspergilus flavus, Alternaria alternate and Fusarium oxysporum. Materials and Methods: Briefly the stock solution of crude extract and other fractions were prepared in DMSO (3 mg mL-1 for antibacterial essay, 4 mg 1 mL-1 for antifungal essay). The antibacterial activity was evaluated by agar diffusion method while for antifungal assay the disc diffusion method was used. Results: The ethanolic and chloroform fractions showed excellent activity against all the selected bacterial strains. The same fractions also showed best activity against all selected fungal strains. Conclusion: The present study suggests Onosma khyberianum to be a source for isolation of antimicrobial compounds for human health care and use as preservatives in food processing industries.
