Soxhlet ethanolic leaf extracts of Xylopia
aethiopica, Occimum gratissimum and their combined
extracts were analyzed for antimicrobial activities
against clinical pathogenic bacteria (Staphylococcus
aureus, Streptococcus pyogenes, Escherichia coli,
Pseudomonas aeruginosa) and a fungus (Candida
albicans) using the agar well diffusion technique. The
susceptibility with regards to their zones of inhibition,
minimum inhibitory concentration (MIC) and
minimum bactericidal concentration (MBC) unraveled
that the extracts exhibited antibacterial activities
without effect on Candida albicans.
Keywords : Antibacterial, Xylopia aethiopica, Ocimum gratissimum, isolates, synergy.
