    Aim and Objective: The aim of this study was to evaluate the antibacterial activity of Caralluma fimbriata (CFE) against Lactobacillus acidophilus. Background: C. fimbriata is an appetite suppressant. It possesses good antioxidant, hepatoprotective, and anticancer activity. It is an indigenous herb with lots of medicinal value. It exhibits anti-inflammatory, antiviral, and antiobesity activity. Materials and Methods: Antibacterial activity is determined by disc diffusion method by adopting in vitro standard protocol. Results: According to the obtained results, the inhibitory activity (maximum zone of inhibition) CFE against L. acidophilus is observed in 25 mg/ml in disc diffusion method. Conclusion: The results indicated that CFE showed antibacterial effect in disc diffusion method.
