AbstractThe aims of this study were to investigate the effect of aqueous extract of the calyx of Hibiscus sabdariffa L. and fruits of Prosopis farcta on some resistance bacteria isolated from urinary tract infected patients. These bacteria were:
Escherichia coli, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Proteus vulgaris, Staphylococcus aureus.
These bacteria were tested for their sensitivity against several antibiotics and against several concentration of extracts.
It was found that the aqueous extract contain inhibitory action more than antibiotics against the tested bacteria.
The inhibitory action on gram positive bacteria Staphylococcus aureus was mor than that against gram negative bacteria Escherichia coli, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Proteus vulgaris.
