Red Cabbage Methanol Extract inhibits the growth of Vancomycin-resistant Enterococcus faecalis during Kirby-Bauer Disk Diffusion Susceptibility Test
Keywords:Red cabbage methanol extract, Vancomycin-resistant Enterococcus faecalis
This study was designed to establish whether the red cabbage methanol extract can inhibit the growth of various strains of bacteria which include Micrococcus luteus, Escherichia coli, Staphylococcus aureus, Bacillus subtilis, Enterococcus faecalis, Vancomycin-resistant Enterococcus faecalis (VRE), Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) and Pseudomonas aeruginosa. The red cabbage methanol extract discs were resisted by all the strains of bacteria except for VRE and Enterococcus faecalis. While the antibiotic streptomycin was resisted by VRE, the red cabbage methanol extract caused a remarkable zone of inhibition.
