Abstract
The purpose of this article was to review the ethno medicinal uses and antimicrobial properties of three varieties of Melastoma malabathricum. The paper also discussed the development and progression to engineer new drugs and also made a few recommendations on 1) botanical nomenclatures of 3 varieties of Melastoma malabathricum 2) The test organisms used for antimicrobial activity 3) Solvents for extractions to obtain more bioactive components 4) Further laboratory approaches. There are many synthetic bioactive components that are commercially available (e.g. flavonoids) and the studies show how these could develop directly from the synthetic bioactive components. However, the interest is to discover new bioactive components which are very active to inhibit the growth of pathogens and also modify and develop those natural bioactive components synthetically to increase activity and to reduce side effects on the consumer.
