activities of the ethanol and methanol extract of the dried
seeds of B. coriacea against clinically significant
bacterial isolates were determined using the agar well
diffusion method. It showed Staphylococcus aureus was
the most susceptible while Bacillus cereus was the least
susceptible to the extracts with methanol extract being more
effective against the clinical bacterial isolates. The
extracts inhibited the growth of the bacterial isolates in a
concentration dependant manner. The antifungal activity of
the extracts on radial mycelical growth of the test
fungi showed that Aspergillus niger was the most
susceptible while Rhizopus spp was the least
