The study aimed to determine the antimicrobial activity of some hydroalcoholic extracts obtained from three vegetable species with choleretic-cholagogue action: artichoke (Cynara scolymus), dandelion (Taraxacum officinale) and burdock (Arctium lappa). The antimicrobial activity of these products was tested by serial dilution method against bacterial strains (Staphylococcus aureus ATCC 6538, Escherichia coli ATCC 8739 and Salmonella abony NCTC 6017). The hydroalcoholic extracts obtained from the…
