Water extracts ofleaves prepared by three different extraction methods were compared with respect to their anti-infective activity againstandin the nematode host. The water extract prepared by Microwave Assisted Extraction method was found to have better anti-infective activity, and its activity was further compared with hydroalcoholic extract prepared using the same extraction method against five different pathogenic bacteria. Both these extracts could attenuate virulence of,,, and, towardsAnti-infective efficacy ofleaf extract seems partly to stem from its quorum-modulatory property, as it could modulate production of quorum sensing-regulated pigments in all the susceptible bacteria.
