ANTIBACTERIAL ACTIVITY OF HONEY ON Staphylococcus aureus Escherichia coli and Streptococcus pyogen ISOLATED FROM WOUND

ABSTRACTAntibacterial activity of honey obtained from two different locations in Enugu State (Nsukka & Ugwuaji) Nigeria on Staphylococcus aureus, Escherichia coli and Streptococcus pyogens isolated from wound was studied. Agar well diffusion method was used to determine the antibacterial activity of the honey on the test microorganisms. The result revealed that the two honey samples have heavy antibacterial activities against the test organisms and zones of inhibition were obtained showin...

Antibacterial activity of three select type of medicated soap on Staphylococcus aureus

ABSTRACTThe antibacterial activity of three types of medicated soap on Staphylococcus aureus isolated from wound infections was conducted. Fourteen individuals with wound infections were sampled. Swab sticks were used to collect specimens from wound infections; each swab stick was streaked separately over plates of nutrient and mannitol agar and subsequently incubated at 370c. Out of the fourteen (14) individuals sampled, 5(36%) were  infected with Staphylococcus aureus, Pseudomonas aeru...

ANTIBACTERIAL PROPERTIES OF Piper guineense LEAF ON SOME SELECTED PATHOGENIC ORGANISMS

CHAPTER ONE 1.1 INTRODUCTION Plants have provided a source of inspiration for novel drug compounds, as plant derived medicines have made large contributions to human health and wellbeing. Plant extracts have been used for a wide variety of purposes for many thousands of years (Jones, 1996). The antimicrobial activity of plant oils and extracts has formed the basis of many applications, including raw and processed food preservatives, pharmaceuticals, alternative medicin...

ANTILIPIDEMIC EFFECT OF WATER (H20) EXTRACT OF DESMODIUM VELUTINUM LEAVES ON ALBINO WISTAR RATS

ABSTRACTThis study evaluated the antilipidemic activity of water extracts from leaves of Desmodium velutinum on albino wistar rats. The phytochemical analysis of the leaf extract showed the presence of tannins, saponins, alkaloids, soluble carbohydrates, flavonoids, reducing sugar, steroids, cyanide and terpenoids. The animals were treated with known drugs (atorvastatin 2ml). There were significantly reductions in HDL 13.00  1.41 mg/dl LDL 1.20  0.14 mg/dl and triglyceride 39.00 &nb...

ANTIMICROBIAL ACTIVITIES OF MANGO PEEL AGAINST SOME PATHOGENIC ORGANISMS.

ABSTRACTAntimicrobial activity of ethanolic extract of Mangifera indica peel wastested on some pathogenic organisms. The extract was tested for activityagainst, Baciollus subtilis, Staphylococcus aureus, Escherichia coli, Salmonelatyphii, Pseudomonas notatum and Aspergillus fumigates. The extract exhibitedactivity against the organisms in varying degrees. In agar diffusion test,Escherichia coli showed the highest zone of inhibition (8mm) at theconcentration of the extract test (1g/3ml) while ...

ANTIMICROBIAL AND PHYTOCHEMICAL ACTIVITIES OF Datura stramonium (GEGEMU LEAVES)

1.0 INTRODUCTION Daturastramoniumis an annual herb, with stem erect and spreading branches above. It is common in the waste land, fields and gardens in Baghdad district. Leaves, seeds and roots contain the alkaloid daturine (a mixture of the two alkaloids hyoscyamine and atropine) and also contain scopolamine alkaloid (Hyosine) acids, tannin and fatty oil. Plants are rich source of secondary metabolites with interesting biological activities (Palombo and Semple, 2001; Koduruet al., 2006)...

ANTIMICROBIAL PROPERTIES OF EAR WAX ON CLINICAL ISOLATES

1.0    INTRODUCTION AND LITERATURE REVIEWEar wax is normally produced in the ear canal. It is made up of the secretions of specialized sets of glands located in the ear canal. Sebaceous glands secrete sebum. Sebum is mostly a combination of fatty acids. Modified apocrine sweat glands release a secretion that combines with the sebum to form cerumen. This cerumen also picks up discarded cells and hair follicles. It may contain dust or other debris that finds its way into the ear canal...
