In our present work we are going to find out weather Ethanol and DMSO extracts of A.Vera gel has antibacterial and anti fungal activity and to test it on few species of bacteria and fungi by measuring their zone of inhibition by cup plate method. The bacterial strains which we have used were.Bacillus subtilis and Sallmonella typhi. The fungal strains which we have used were Aspergillus fumigates and Pencillium notatum.The ethanolic extract showed greater antibacterial and antifungal activity compared to DMSO extract of aloe vera. The study suggests the antimicrobial and antifungal activity of the A. vera gel extract to be dependant on the synergistic effect of different compounds. With the broad spectral antimicrobial and antifungal effect of A. vera gel, it could be further recommended in the treatment of bacterial and fungal diseases. Keywords: Aloe vera, Dimethyl sulphoxide(DMSO),Synergistic effect.
