Abstract Antibacterial, anti-inflammatory and anti-allergic activities of standardised pomegranate rind extract (SPRE) containing 13% w/w ellagic acid were studied in vitro . The antibacterial activity of SPRE was determined using the disc diffusion and broth microdilution methods. SPRE exhibited a potent bacteriostatic effect against Propionibacterium acnes , a Gram-positive anaerobe, with a MIC of 15.6 μg/ml, and Gram-positive facultative anaerobic bacteria , Staphylococcus aureus and… Expand
