    <description descriptionType="Abstract">&lt;p&gt;Antibacterial studies of aqueous leaf extract of&lt;em&gt; Chrozophora senegalensis &lt;/em&gt;was conducted on bacterial isolate from sheep diarrhea using 100, 200, 300, 400 and 500 mg/mL of the extract and neomycin at 10&amp;micro;g/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 10&amp;micro;g/mL.&amp;nbsp; It was therefore concluded that the extract can be used as a remedy against bacterial diarrhea.&lt;/p&gt;</description>
