Key MethodAqueous, methanolic and ethyl acetate extracts of 14 plants used in traditional Zulu medicine for treatment of ailments of an infectious nature were screened for antibacterial activity. Most of the activity detected was against gram-positive bacteria. Tuber bark extracts of Dioscorea sylvatica had activity against gram-negative Escherichia coli and extracts of Dioscorea dregeana, Cheilanthes viridis and Vernonia colorata were active against Pseudomonas aeruginosa. The highest antibacterial…Expand
In Vitro Antibacterial activity of Different Yemeni Leaves extracts of Lawsoniainermis against Some Bacterial Pathogens
The aim of this study was to evaluate antibacterial activity of the leaves of the Yemeni Lawsoniainermis L. The aqueous, methanol, ethanol, and acetone extract of Lawsoniainermis Leaves were tested
Screening of some plant extracts for antifungalactivity against Candida species
TLDR
The antimicrobial activity was determined in ethanol extracts and distill water extracts of these plants and Q. infectoria showed the maximum activity against all species of Candida fungus.
ANTIBACTRIAL EFFECT OF SOME MEDICINAL PLANT EXTRACTS AGAINST SOME PATHOGENIC BACTERIAL STRAINS
TLDR
The minimum inhibitory concentration (MIC) was determined and it was found that the alkaloidal, flavonidal and phenolic extracts of all plants had MIC against G+ and G– with different values.
IN VITRO ANTIBACTERIAL ACTIVITY OF THE METHANOLIC AND AQUEOUS EXTRACTS OF ANACYCLUS PYRETHRUM USED IN MOROCCAN TRADITIONAL MEDICINE Research Article
TLDR
The antibacterial activity demonstrated that all extracts have an inhibitory activity against bacteria with the lowest MIC at 3.125mg/ml, supporting the ethno-pharmacological uses of this plant in folk medicine and could provide useful data for the utilization of this extracts in pharmaceutical, cosmetic and food industries.

Evaluation of antibacterial activity of traditionally prepared South African remedies for infections
TLDR
Seven traditional remedies used in South Africa for bacterial infections were prepared according to the traditional method of preparation and the aqueous extracts had no detectable activity, whereas several of the ethyl acetate phases had some activity.
