Antibacterial Activity of Terminalia Catappa Extract against Pseudomonas Aeruginosa Isolated from Different Infections

Article excerpt

Background: The purpose of this study was to determine the antibacterial activity of methanolic extract from fruit of Terminalia catappa against P.aeruginosa isolated from different infections and to compare with effects of selected antibiotics in vitro.

Methods: This research is a descriptive analytic study. First, a sample of methanolic extract of the plant fruit was prepared by maceration method. Then its antibacterial activity against 126 isolates of P.aeruginosa from 185 samples of different in- fection was evaluated by well diffusion and then agar serial dilution method. Also, the MIC (Minimum Inhibitory Con- centration) of the extract was determined. The effect of se- lected antibiotics was tested by disk diffusion method.

Results: The frequency distribution tables, diagrams, onava test were used to describe and compare the results. …
