 Abstract

 

ABSTRACT: The in vitro antimicrobial and phytochemical activities of the crude ethanolic leaf extract of Acacia nilotica on Campylobacter coli isolated from goats in Gwagwalada Abattoir was investigated.  Hydrolysable tannins, saponin, saponin glycosides, volatile oils, phenols, triterpenes, flavonoids and alkaloid were present in the extract.  Minimum inhibitory concentration was 70 mg/ml of the extract related to standardized bacteria colony of 3 x 108 organisms per mL.  The highest zone of inhibition was observed with the 70 mg/ml concentration, following isolation and inoculation of test organisms on Muller Hinton Agar incubated at 37oC for 24 hours.  The basis of this plant extract in the traditional treatment of diarrhea in human is highlighted.

 

Keywords:  Acacia nilotica, antimicrobial activity, chemical constituents, campylobacter coli.
