Infectious diseases produced by bacteria are an urgent healthcare concern worldwide. Several infections in humans are caused by bacterial agents such as Bacillus subtilis, Escherichia coli, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Proteus vulgaris, and Staphylococcus aureus. The current development of resistance to antibiotics and accompanying toxicity issues is causing a rise in studies into the antibacterial role of plants against resistant strains due to relative effectiveness and safety. The current work was done to check the antibacterial activity of Azadirachta indica leaves (Neem) along with the green synthesis of silver nanoparticles. Methanol and Acetone extracts of Neem leaves were tested against Klebsiella oxytoca and Staphylococcus aureus, both of which are resistant to antibiotics. Silver nanoparticle synthesized in methanol was very effective against Klebsiella oxytoca (13.5mm).
