Abstract: Out of the twenty-four samples of shrimp and fish muscle used for this study, twelve were collected near a large marine sewer for waste disposal, 3 km off the coast of Fortaleza (Brazil) and used for the isolation of E. coli. Other twelve were collected at the Mucuripe fresh fish market (Fortaleza, Brazil) and used for the isolation of Staphylococcus aureus. Ethanol, water and acetone-diluted extracts of guava and papaya leaf sprouts were tested on the bacteria in order to verify their microbicidal potential. … Show more

“…Gnan and Demello (1999) reported a complete inhibition of growth of S. aureus, S. epidermidis and S. typhimurium caused by aqueous guava leaf extract at a concentration of 8 mg/ml. Vieira et al (2001) reported the microbiocidal effect of guava sprout extract (ethanol, acetone and water) upon toxigenic S. aureus and E. coli, performed using radial diffusion. Extracts prepared with 60% alcohol and 60% acetone produced the largest halos for both species of bacteria.…”

“…Therefore P. guajava leaf extract may be recommended for cough. 22 Vieira et al 23 have reported the antibacterial effect of P. guajava leaves extracts and found that they inhibited the growth of the S. aureus. The methanolic plant leaf extracts of P. guajava and barks of this plant have antimicrobial activity.…”
