Antimicrobial activity of Melaleuca sp. oil against clinical isolates of antibiotics resistant Staphylococcus aureus

Abstract: PURPOSE:To extract the Melaleuca sp. oil and to assess its in vitro inhibitory effect against Staphylococcus aureus isolates obtained from lower limb wounds and resistant to several antibiotics. METHODS:A total of 14 test-tubes containing Mueller-Hinton broth were used to determine the Minimum Inhibitory Concentration (MIC). The following concentrations of the Melaleuca sp. oil were added to the first 11 tubes: 8; 4; 2; 1; 0.5; 0.2; 0.1; 0.05; 0.025; 0.0125 and 0.00625%. The 12 th and 13 th tubes, with and wit… Show more

“…It can be hypothesized that the positive outcomes observed in this study resulted from the combination of the various active ingredients contained in DBB. The essential oil of M. cajuputi contains different molecules including 1.8‐cineole, with strong mucolytic, expectorant and anti‐inflammatory properties, and other monoterpenes and sesquiterpenes with antimicrobial and analgesic properties . Soybean oil is the main excipient of the product and contains vitamins (A, D, E and K) and essential fatty acids (linoleic, linolenic and oleic acids) .…”
