Optimal methods for evaluating antimicrobial activities from plant extracts.
Screening methods to determine antibacterial activity of natural products
TLDR
Evaluating technical variants used in screening methods to determine antibacterial activity of natural products found bioautographic and diffusion techniques were found to have similar sensitivity; however the latter technique provided more suitable conditions for the microbial growth.

The use of standard methodology for determination of antifungal activity of natural products against medical yeasts Candida sp and Cryptococcus sp
TLDR
Different methods for determination of antifungal activity of natural products are discussed and the use of M27-A2 microdilution test from CLSI, as general standard methodology for testing plant extracts activity is recommended.
Evaluation of the combined antimicrobial activity of the leaf extract of phyllantus muellerianus with ciprofloxacin
TLDR
The methanol leaf extract of Phyllanthus muellerianus possess antibacterial activity against P. faecalis and could possibly be used in combination with ciprofloxacin to treat infections caused by P. aeruginosa.
