Study the inhibitory effect of Genger and Altbek grain against the growth some pathogenic bacterial and fungal species
This study included the test of Antimicrobial activity for two types extracts, the first is effect of aqueous, alcoholic, fresh juice and powder ginger extract .The second is the aqueous and alcoholic extract of Altbek grain on sex bacterial species: Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Staphylococcus aureus, Streptococcus pneumonia, Proteus mirabilis, Escherichia coli, Klebsiella pneumonia and 3 fungal species belonging to the genus Candida: Candida albicans, Candida krusei, Candida glabrata . The results showed that both the aqueous and alcoholic for genger have high inhibited activity against p.mirabilis comparison all five tested antibiotics ,Also have the aqueous extract of ginger high activity against K .pneumonia when compared to all Antibiotics used in the study, either powder extract of genger have high inhibited activity against only P.aeruginosa while not showed any effective inhibition against bacterial and fungal species, also showed effective inhibition for alcoholic extract of genger against all fungal species, While not showed any effective inhibition for aqueous, juice and powder extract against fungal species. The study showed the aqueous and alcoholic Altbek grain have high effective activity against S.aureus comparison to Antibiotics: Cefotaxim, Norfloxacin and moderate effective when compared to Antibiotics: Amikacin, Ciprofloxacin, Augmentin, The aqueous and alcoholic genger extract have highly effective inhibition against S.pneumonia compared of Antibiotics: Norfloxacin, Augmentin, Cefotaxim and medium effective compared with Antibiotics: Amikacin, Ciprofloxacin, and did not appear any effective inhibition against all fungal species.
