  title={The antibacterial activities of Sesamum indicum Linn. leaf extracts},
  author={Ogunsola O.K and Fasola T.R},
  journal={Advances in Life Science and Technology},
The antimicrobial activities of a neglected indigenous vegetable plant, Sesamum indicum Linn. were investigated. Ethanol and aqueous leaf extracts were screened for anti-microbial activities on the pathogens; Klebsiella pneumonia, Salmonella typhii, Escherichia coli and Staphylococcus aureus using different concentrations (100mg/ml, 200mg/ml and 400mg/ml). The ethanolic extract (400mg/ml) strongly inhibited the growth of E. coli while it mildly inhibited the growth of K. pneumonia and S. typhii…

Comparative studies of the crude extracts of sesame against some common pathogenic microorganisms.

The ethanolic, methanolic and aqueous extracts of Sesame radiatum and its combination with Sesame indicum leaves were studied for their in-vitro antimicrobial activity against tested pathogenic micro-organisms and are equally effective against tested micro- organisms as the standard antibiotics.
