Bacterial infectious maladies are the leading cause of death worldwide. Microbial drug resistance boosts the severity of the maladies. In the present study, the antibacterial impact of Aloe vera leaf aqueous extract against six strains of methicillin resistant Staphylococcus aureus (LN872136, LN872137, LN871238, LN871239, LN872140, LN871241) was investigated in vitro. The effect of different concentrations (5-20mg/ ml) of the plant extract on bacterial growth was evaluated by estimating the dry…
