Abstract: The antimicrobial activity of plant extracts and phytochemicals was evaluated with antibiotic susceptible and resistant microorganisms. In addition, the possible synergistic effects when associated with antibiotics were studied. Extracts from the following plants were utilized: Achillea millifolium (yarrow), Caryophyllus aromaticus (clove), Melissa offficinalis (lemon-balm), Ocimun basilucum (basil), Psidium guajava (guava), Punica granatum (pomegranate), Rosmarinus officinalis (rosemary), Salvia officinalis (… Show more

“…As shown by GONÇALVES et al 18 and NASCIMENTO et al 31 , S. aureus has been inhibited by extracts prepared from a variety of phanerogams. Likewise, VIEIRA et al 42 found S. aureus to be sensitive to guava leaf extracts in a study testing medicinal plants against bacteria causing diarrhea in children.…”

Dados sobre a atividade antibacteriana de extratos vegetais frente a variados microrganismos permitem evidenciar que as plantas apresentam potencial para o tratamento terapêutico, apesar de muitos destes extratos não terem sido completamente investigados cientificamente (Nascimento et al, 2000).…”
