Antimicrobial Efficiency of Essential Oils from Traditional Medicinal Plants of Asir Region, Saudi Arabia, over Drug Resistant Isolates

Abstract: Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) is a recurring global problem, which constantly demands new antimicrobial compounds to challenge the resistance. It is well known that essential oils (EOs) have been known for biological activities including antimicrobial properties. In this study, EOs from seven aromatic plants of Asir region of southwestern Saudi Arabia were tested for their antimicrobial efficacy against four drug resistant pathogenic bacterial isolates (Staphylococcus aureus, Streptococcus pyogenes, Escherich… Show more

“…All strains were conserved at −80 • C and were grown on Muller Hinton medium for bacteria (24 h) and Sabouraud medium for yeasts (48 h) prior to the assays. As described by Helal et al [44] the disc-diffusion method was used to evaluate antimicrobial activity. Petri dishes containing Sabouraud and Muller Hinton (MH) agar were seeded with a cell suspension of yeasts (10 5 CFU/mL) and bacteria (10 8 CFU/mL), respectively.…”

“…Therefore, MIC values for E. coli O157:H7 were 5 mg MOEO/mL, and 45 mg BEO/mL. It has been reported lower MIC value for BEO (12.5 mg/mL), but obtained by HD [8].…”

“…Each concentration was tested in nutrient broth inoculated with 10 5 CFU/ml of E. coli O157:H7. The suspension was incubated for 6 h at 37 • C, and then aliquots of 20 µL in triplicate, were incubated in nutrient agar (Bioxon) following the spot method [31], and incubated for 24 h at 37 • C. Minimum inhibitory concentration (MIC) was defined as the lowest EO concentration (mg/mL) that completely inhibited E. coli 0157:H7 [8].…”
