In vitro studies of antibacterial properties of aqueous leaf extract of chrozophora senegalensis on sheep diarrhea

Makun, B.; Ebbo, A. A.

Antibacterial studies of aqueous leaf extract of Chrozophora senegalensis was conducted on bacterial isolate from sheep diarrhea using 100, 200, 300, 400 and 500 mg/mL of the extract and neomycin at 10µg/mL as control. The isolates obtained were Salmonella, Shigella and Klebsiella spp. There was a dose dependent increase in sensitivity of all isolates to the extract, with the highest concentration being comparable to the neomycin at 10µg/mL.  It was therefore concluded that the extract can be used as a remedy against bacterial diarrhea.
