Inhibition Activity of annona muricata extract Against Bacterial Species Isolated from Different Infections.


Different species of bacteria (Staphylococcusaureus , Escherichiacoli, Pseudomonasaeruginosa,Proteusspp.,Klebsiellaspp., Staphylococcus epidermidis) were isolated from urinary tract infections,burn infections and wound infections from inpateints and outpateints of Azadi educational hospital and public hospital of Kirkuk during the period 1-9-2015 to 1-4-2016. Inhibition activity of Annona muricata extract were tested against bacterial isolates after determined the minimum inhibition concentration(MIC).The results showed that the MIC was at 50mg/ml against bacterial species,so the results also showed the variation of inhibition activities of extract agaist bacterial species.The higher diameter of inhibition regions was against Proteus spp.,S.aureus and S.epidermidis which isolated from urinary tract infections at(10)mm,and the higher inhibition activity of extract was against S.epidermidis which isolated from burn infections and against S.epidermidis, Klebsiella spp. which isolated from wound infections at(9)mm.The results showed the synergism effect between Annona muricata extract and antibiotics (Azithromycin, Ciprofloxacin and Ceftriaxone).
