Abies koreana Wilson is a proper tree to Korea. We tested the antimicrobial activity of the lignans isolated from it. The lignans inhibited the growth of Klebsiella pneumoniae and Vibrio parahaemolyticus at the concentration of $10^3\;ppm\;and\;10^4\;ppm$. Especially, the compound V showed higher inhibition activity to Vibrio parahaemolyticus by 1.7 times compared with the control. The compound III showed activity of 36% of the control to Klebsiella pneumoniae. The compounds II and VI had the high growth inhibition activity of 48, 66% respectively to Vibrio parahaemolyticus.
