Determination of the minimum inhibitor concentration of Syzygium aromaticum extract on the growth of Pseudomonas aeruginosa isolated from burn infection
The cold aqueous extraction method of Syzygium aromaticum was used and the minimum inhibitory concentration (MIC) was measured after culturing the bacteria in a nutrient broth medium containing known concentrations of the extract. And the susceptibility of the bacteria to a group of common antibiotics has been determined.
The results showed that 72.8% of the burn infection were caused by P. aeruginosa, and that the (MIC) value ranged between (0.01-0.1 mg / ml). And that the bacteria showed multi resistance to antibiotics, and high sensitivity to Nitrofurantoin.
