The antimicrobial effects of aqueous garlic extract (AGE) against 133 multidrug-resistant gram-positive and gram-negative bacterial isolates, including Staphylococcus aureus, Staphylococcus epidermidis, Streptococcus pneumoniae, Streptococcus pyogenes, Haemophilus influenzae, Salmonella typhi, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Escherichia coli, Shigella spp., and Proteus spp., and against 10 Candida spp. were studied. Antibacterial activity of AGE by well-diffusion and macrobroth dilution method was… 
In vitro Antibacterial Activity and Stability of Garlic Extract at Different pH and Temperature
The antibacterial effects of aqueous garlic extract (AGE) against 17 multidrug-resistant gram-positive and gram-negative bacterial isolates, including Staphylococcus aureus, Salmonella typhi,
In vitro Antibacterial Activity and Stability of Garlic Extract atDifferent pH and Temperature
TLDR
Garlic can be used to protect food and consumers from the risk of contamination from pathogenic microorganisms and appears to satisfy all of the criteria for antibacterial agents, according to the results.
Antibacterial potency of garlic extract against certain skin pathogenic bacteria
TLDR
Findings from this study encourage and support the use of AGE in treating bacterial skin infections especially in developing countries like Africa, as it is available, economic and have no side effects.
Antibacterial Activity of Garlic Extract Against some Pathogenic Animal Bacteria
TLDR
Evaluated the antibacterial activity of water and ethanol extracts of garlic against Salmonella typhimurium in chickens, and Streptococcus agalactie, Escherichia coli, and Staphylococcus aureus causing mastitis in dairy cows in Indonesia found that garlic aqueous extract on mastitis bacteria was better than that of the garlic ethanol extract.
The Antibacterial Effect of Aqueous Extract of Garlic against Resistant Enterococci
TLDR
This study indicates the clear anti-enterococcal effect of aqueous extract of garlic and confirms the use of garlic in treatments by medicinal plants.
IN VITRO EVALUATION OF ANTIMICROBIAL EFFECT OF FRESH GARLIC EXTRACT AND ITS INTERACTION WITH CONVENTIONAL ANTIMICROBIALS AGAINST ESCHERICHIA COLI ISOLATES
TLDR
Possibility of concurrent use of antimicrobial drugs and FGE in treating infections caused E. coli spp.
In Vitro Antibacterial Properties of Aqueous Garlic Extract (AEG) Against Multidrug-Resistant Enterococci
TLDR
The present study suggests that AGE has a significant anti-enterococcal effect and therefore, supports the use of garlic as an herbal remedy in Zahedan.
Studies on in vitro interaction of ampicillin and fresh garlic extract against Staphylococcus aureus by checkerboard method
TLDR
This in vitro study indicates synergism between FGE and ampicillin against S. aureus and Evaluation of these combinations in vivo may be warranted.
Synergistic Antibacterial Activity of Pleurotus Species (Mushroom) and Psychotria microphylla (Herb) against Some Clinical Isolates
TLDR
The synergistic effect produced by Psychotria microphylla and Pleurotus species holds a good promise in the treatment of infections caused by tested bacteria and should be harnessed and patented.
INHIBITORY EFFECT OF AQUEOUS GARLIC EXTRACT (ALLIUM SATIVUM) ON DRUG RESISTANT BACTERIAL ISOLATES
TLDR
All isolates tested were sensitive to aqueous garlic extract that could be used as an antibiotic for treatment of bacterial infections, and the resistant and multiple antimicrobial agents resistant were common in the isolates.

TLDR
The results suggest that garlic oil, DAT and DATS may have potential for the prevention or treatment of nosocomial, antibiotic-resistant bacterial infections.
A quantitative assessment of the antimicrobial activity of garlic (Allium sativum)
TLDR
Lactic acid bacteria were the least sensitive microorganisms to the inhibitory effects of garlic, and garlic prevented the establishment of E. coli in mixed culture studies of Lactobacillus acidophilus and Escherichia coli, although the final outcome of competition was not affected.

TLDR
It is demonstrated in vitro that H. pylori is susceptible to garlic extract at a fairly moderate concentration, and clinical trials are necessary to explore the possibility of using garlic as a low-cost remedy for eradicating H.pylori.
Antimicrobial Properties of Garlic Oil against Human Enteric Bacteria: Evaluation of Methodologies and Comparisons with Garlic Oil Sulfides and Garlic Powder
TLDR
Viability time studies of GO and GP against Enterobacter aerogenes showed time- and dose-dependent effects, and GP was more active than GO against most bacteria, although some properties of GO are identified as offering greater therapeutic potential.
Antimicrobial resistance patterns and plasmids of enteropathogenic Escherichia coli isolated in Nigeria
TLDR
In an epidemiological study of enteropathogenic Escherichia coli, 102 strains were isolated from patients seen at the University Teaching Hospital in Lagos, and plasmld-determined resistance to tetracycline, ampicillin, streptomycin and sulphonamide was found.

TLDR
Only through the recognition of factors associated with increasing resistance and the mechanisms responsible can strategies be designed for minimizing beta-lactam resistance.
Epidemiology of shigellosis in Lagos, Nigeria: trends in antimicrobial resistance.
TLDR
The results of this study revealed the endemicity of shigellosis with S. flexneri as the predominant serogroup in Lagos and suggested that ampicillin, tetracycline, co-trimoxazole, and streptomycin should not be used as the first-line drugs in the treatment of shIGellosis.

Bacterial agents causing chronic suppurative otitis media.
TLDR
Ear swabs have indicated that Staphylococcus aureus, Pseudomonas aeruginosa and Proteus mirabilis are leading bacterial agents of otitis media and highlights the high risk involved in the use of penicillin, ampicillin, streptomycin, tetracycline, chloramphenicol, erythromycin, cloxacillin and septrin in the management of chronic Otitis media in Edo State.
