Jyoti Maddheshiya1, Tripti Aggarwal1, Sandhya Kushwaha1, Ujla Minhas1*, Rakesh Kumar2

Foeniculum vulgare Miller also has been extensively studied for its antimicrobial activity and recently many studies have also revealed its
antibiofilm activity. Antibiotic resistance, which is a serious concern, demands the discovery of novel antimicrobial chemicals that can
be developed and utilized as antibiotics. Compounds with antibiofilm activity must also be discovered to combat antibiotic resistant
biofilm making microbials. The present review was conducted with the aim of evaluating current data on the antibacterial and antibiofilm
activities of Foeniculum vulgare Miller and is the result of a thorough evaluation of the scientific literature on Foeniculum vulgare Miller,
chemical composition, general medicinal and traditional properties, antimicrobial, antibiofilm activity.

Keywords Foeniculum vulgare Miller, Antimicrobial activity, Antibiofilm.
