Article excerpt

Background: Plants are important resources for searching new drugs. Todays, as the spread of antibiotic resistance in bacteria, tendency of replacing synthetic materials with plants materials have been increased. Plant materials because of lower toxicity and production cost can be introduced as new drugs. The purpose of this study was to investigate the anti- bacterial activity of the alcoholic extract of Olea europaea (olive).

Methods: 10 gr dried powder of O. europaea leaf were mixed in 100 cc of %96 ethanol stayed in refrigerator over- night; then was pure with purification paper and extractions were obtained after alcohol evaporation. Preparation of methanolic extract was done due to the same method, too. Different concentrations of this methanolic and ethanolic extracts from 0.05 to 0.4 g/ml were tested by disc diffusion method against Staphylococcus aureus ATCC: 25923, Bacillus subtilis ATCC: 6633, Escherichia coli ATCC: 25922 and Pseudo- monas aeruginosa ATCC: 2785. …
