Determination of Efficacy of Allium sativum (Garlic) Bulbs Extracts on Some Enteric (Pathogenic) Bacteria
The goal of this investigation was to see if ethanol and aqueous extracts of Allium sativum (garlic) could successfully kill pure cultures of pathogenic and enteric bacteria. Cold extraction of Allium sativum (garlic) bulbs yielded ethanol and water extracts, which were subsequently concentrated in a soxhlet apparatus. By mixing the bulbs and then squeezing the juice out with muslin fabric, a crude (raw) extract of the bulbs was also obtained. These extracts were put to the test in a variety of ways. concentrations on four enteric bacteria species, including Salmonella typhi, Salmonella paratyphi, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, and Klebsiella spp., to see how effective they are against these dangerous bacteria. The crude extract yielded an extremely positive outcome, while the others yielded negative results.
