The intricate groups of microorganisms that colonize the human gastrointestinal tract assume a vital part in human health. The advance of culture-autonomous sub-atomic systems has given new bits of data within the creation and diverse qualities of the enteric microbiota. People have complex microbial groups accepted to add to wellbeing support and, when in lopsidedness, to the improvement of maladies. Deciding the microbic sythesis in patients and sound controls might therefore offer novel therapeutic targets. In this paper, microbial pathogens were isolated from patients GI track and the antimicrobial activity of the Mixed Algal cultures isolated from Tammileru lake and Godavari river (A1, A2, A3, A4, & A5) microalgae was tested on the isolated pathogens. Totally, 20 bacterial and 6 fungal strains were isolated, of which Eschericia coli (34.1), Enterococci spp (20%), Lactobacilli spp (22%), Staphylococcus spp. (30.2%) and Pseudomonas aeruginosa (P. aeruginosa) (12.8%) were the major pathogens. Only three Staphylococcus aureus (S. aureus) strains and Pseudomonas strains showed resistance to methicillin. The mixed algal extract showed interesting antimicrobial properties, which mostly inhibited the growth of isolated S. aureus, P. aeruginosa, Escherichia coli and Klebsiella spp. These results suggest that the two algae have potential as resources for the development of antimicrobial agents.
