Abstract

The current study aimed at the possibility of benefiting from the plant extracts of the Costus speciosus and Salvia officinalis plants in the treatment of bacterial diseases through knowing the inhibitory effect of these extracts on the isolated bacterial species. The aqueous cold - hot and alcoholic extracts ethanol – methanol were tested with concentrations of 70,50,10 mg / ml and by the method of diffusion in pollen of Costus speciosus .L and Saliva officinalis L. on the bacterial genera Pseudomonas areuginosa, Klebsiella pneumonia, Enterobacter spp. that isolated from patients with urinary tract infection in the city of Samarra, where the results showed that the two types of water extracts, especially the hot ones, are more efficient than both alcoholic extracts of The two plants mentioned above. Where the concentration of 70 mg / ml gave the aqueous extracts a high inhibitory capacity and for both plants compared to the other concentrations, as it was found that the inhibitory capacity increased with increasing concentrations, while the alcohol extracts had a low inhibitory capacity to no compared to the aqueous extracts.
