Abstract :
PURPOSE: Antimicrobial Resistance of bacterial infections to drugs presently used are major problem for curing the infections. The aim of this study is check the potential of Trachyspermum ammi seeds against four different bacterial pathogens. METHODS: Evaluation of antibacterial activity of ethyl acetate extract prepared from the powdered seeds of Trachyspermum ammi was determined by agar well diffusion method against bacterial pathogens Staphylococcus aureus, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Hafnia alvei and Micrococcus luteus. RESULTS: Various concentrations of extracts such as 25μg/ml, 50μg/ml, and 100μg/ml was tested with chloramphenicol (100μg/ml) as positive control. Zone of inhibition was measured and calculated. CONCLUSIONS: Trachyspermum ammi extract showed highest antibacterial effect against hafnia alvei while least effect against micrococcus luteus.
