Bacterial infections are a nuisance to mankind from prehistoric times and still alive particularly in third world countries, where medicinal plants are extensively used as a treatment to pathogens since the known human history. In the current investigation, we used the crude extracts of an annual Holy Basil plant (Ocimum basilicum L. Family: Lamiaceae) enriched with a variety of aromatics, against the virulence of five pathogenic bacteria i.e., Staphylococcus aureus, Pseudomonas aeruginosa…

Antimicrobial activity by solvents extracted from Ocimum basilicum herb against multidrug resistant gram negative rods.

Ethyl acetate fraction and crude ethanolic extract from leaves of Ocimum basilicum showed good antibacterial effectiveness against ESBLs and carbapenem resistant organisms than other fractions, which may also promote the effective use of O. basilicum herb and its components in modern medicine.

The ethyl acetate fraction of basil has antibacterial potential on Streptococcus mutans, as seen by the presence of an inhibitory zone during the MIC and MKC examination and decreasing number of bacterial colonies on agar media.
