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… Expand

Antibiofilm activity of essential oils and plant extracts against Staphylococcus aureus and Escherichia coli biofilms
It is demonstrated that coriander EO had the highest antibiofilm activity against biofilm formed by both tested bacteria (S. aureus and E. coli) at lowest MIC value 0.8 μl/ml and 1.6 μL/ml, respectively, indicating further investigations due to the oil's high antibioFilm activity potential. Expand
