An acetone extract of the moss Pleurochaete squarrosa was tested against eleven bacterial strains, some of which are pathogenous for man. The extract was active on some Gram-negative strains. Antibacterial activity of the extract, expressed as MICs, was compared with three reference antibiotics. Acute toxicity assay was performed in Balb C mice.
