The aim of the present study was to asses antiMRSA (Methicilin resistance Staphylococcus aureus) activity of Moringa oleifera seeds, Glycyrrhiza glabra stems and Jasminum sambac leaves. Antimicrobial activities of ethanol, methanol, hot water and cold water extracts of Moringa oleifera seeds, Glycyrrhiza glabra stems and Jasminum sambac leaves were tested against Methicilin resistance Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) by agar well diffusion method.
Method Antibacterial activity of all the extracts of Moringa oleifera seeds, Glycyrrhiza glabra stems, and Jasminum sambac leaves were determined by agar well diffusion method at the concentration 500 mg/ml. The controls used were standard antibiotic discs of amoxillin (30mcg), ampicillin (30mcg), oflaxine (5mcg), methicillin (15 mcg) and cefpodoxime (15mcg).
Results After incubation at 370C for 24 hours zones of inhibition were measured.
Conclusion These findings suggested methanol extract of Glycyrrhiza glabra stems showed high antibacterial activity against Methicilin resistance Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA).
Keywords:- MRSA, Agar well diffusion, minimum inhibition concentration and antibacterial activity.
