  author={Ahmed Kabrah and Dr. Hani S. Faidah and Dr. Ahmad M Ashshi and Mrs. Safaa A. Turkistani},
Onion (Allium cepa) is among the oldest cultivated plants, and is used for multiple purposes. In addition to its nutritional effects, the antioxidant and antimicrobial activities of onion has also been postulated, and continue to be extensively investigated. Therefore, this study was designed to investigate the possible antibacterial effects of three types of onions; red, green and white onion. Different concentration of each onion was prepared in water extraction form. Six types of bacteria…

Antimicrobial Evaluation of Natural Spices (Tumeric, Garlic, Onion, Celery and Cinnamon) Versus Synthetic Antibiotics (Tetracycline, Clindamycin and Ceftriazone) at Three Different Concentrations (10%, 50% and 100%)

The Disc Diffusion Assay was used to investigate the antimicrobial potency of the synthetic drugs and herbal medicines under aseptic conditions and antimicrobial selectivity was also observed for both synthetic and herbal medicine.

The results showed that the onion extracts possess an effect on all test bacterial strains, and the effects were bactericidal against cultured and resting bacterial cells, suggesting that no decomposition or volatility of onion extracts occurred in the culture medium.

Antibacterial Activity Of Allium cepa (Onions) And Zingiber officinale (Ginger) On Staphylococcus aureus And Pseudomonas aeruginosa Isolated From High Vaginal Swab

Investigation of the antibacterial activity of raw and aqueous extracts of Allium cepa and Zingiber officinale against Staphylococcus aureus and Pseudomonas aeruginosa indicates that ginger had more inhibitory effect thus confirming their use in folk medicine.

Antimicrobial and antioxidant activity of crude onion (Allium cepa, L.) extracts

The antimicrobial activity of flavonol standards and onion extracts was evaluated against some food spoiler microorganisms and among the onion extracts tested only ethyl acetate subfraction showed antimicrobial inhibition.

Antibacterial, antidermatophytic and antitoxigenic activities of onion (Allium cepa L.) oil.

Antibacterial activity of a new, stable, aqueous extract of allicin against methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus

A new, stable, aqueous extract of allicin (extracted from garlic) is tested on 30 clinical isolates of MRSA that show a range of susceptibilities to mupirocin, and it is shown that a concentration of 500 µg/mL in an aqueously cream base was required to produce an activity equivalent to 256 µG/mL allicIn liquid.

In-vitro antibacterial activity of Allium humile

This review aims to obtain the preliminary information regarding the inhibitory effects of the extracts of Allium humile on the test strains B. subtilis, S. aureus, E. coli and P. aerugenosa. The

Antibacterial and antioxidant activities of quercetin oxidation products from yellow onion (Allium cepa) skin.

Four new quercetin-derived oxidation products and lunularin-4-O-beta-D-glucoside were isolated from a water extract of onion (Allium cepa) skin, together with 17 other known compounds, and evaluation of antioxidant activity against DPPH showed that the new derivative compounds and 2,5,7,3',4'-pentahydroxy-3,4-flavandione are more active than quercets.

Allium Thiosulfinates: Chemistry, Biological Properties and their Potential Utilization in Food Preservation

Onion (Allium cepa L.), garlic (Allium sativum L.) and other edible Allium are among the oldest cultivated plants, and are used for multiple purposes. They are a rich source of several

Physicochemical characteristics of onion (Allium cepa L.) tissues.

Analysis of chemical composition of cell walls from the papery scales and outer fleshy scales of onion showed that calcium cross-linking may play an important role in cell-cell adhesion, and the order of strength of the tissues was papery Scale > fleshy Scale > epidermis > intermediate parenchyma.
