Antibacterial activity of Carica papaya seed extracts on Escherichia coli isolates from toilet compartments in Morogoro

Article in Press

Antimicrobial resistance is one of the 21st century’s major global public health challenge which calls for search for newer sources of antimicrobials. Escherichia coli (E. coli) is gram negative straight rod, non-spore forming bacteria, widely distributed in nature and commonly found in lower gastro intestinal tracts of most warm-blooded animals. The bacteria are associated with dysentery and hemolytic uremic syndrome in...

Antibacterial activity of pawpaw seed extract (Carica papaya) on multi-drug resistant bacteria isolated from dry poultry waste

Article in Press

Poultry management generates high amounts of wastes which may result in disposal and pollution threats. It is an ecological place where there are large and diverse numbers of microorganisms. This was therefore designed to investigate bacteria diversities, their antibiotics resistance and possible implication in transporting it over long distance as manure. Dry poultry waste samples were collected from poultry waste packing...

In vitro evaluation of the antibacterial activity of Plectranthus lanuginosus (Hochst. Ex Benth.) Agnew leaf extracts

Article in Press

The increased care toward substituting chemical antimicrobials with natural preparations has led to increased studies. To demonstrate the antimicrobial physiognomies of plant extracts, their consequence on infectious pathogenic microorganisms has to be studied in laboratory. In this study, aqueous, ethanol and n-hexane leaf extracts of Plectranthus lanuginosus were tested for their antibacterial activity against...

Predictors of Sputum Smear Conversion at the end of Two Months Tuberculosis Treatment among New Smear Positive Pulmonary Tuberculosis Patients in Addis Ababa Public Health Centers: a case control study

Article in Press

Background: Limited data are available on predictors of persistent sputum smear positivity at the end of second months of anti-tuberculosis (TB) treatment in Ethiopia. The present investigation was undertaken to identify predictors of sputum smear conversion at the end of second months of anti-TB among new smear positive pulmonary tuberculosis patients on treatment in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. Methods: Case-control study was...

Antibiotics susceptibility profile and prevalence of gram-negative uropathogens/urinary isolates from asymptomatic bacteriuria among female students in a University in northern Nigeria

Article in Press

Asymptomatic bacteriuria among healthy female students is a common occurrence that is frequently ignored and this is attributed to the fact that pre-menopausal, non-pregnant women with asymptomatic bacteriuria experience no adverse effects and usually will clear their bacteriuria spontaneously. However, these women are more likely to experience subsequent symptomatic urinary tract infection (UTI) than women who do not have...

Survey of Vibrio cholera contamination in surface waters in southwest of Iran

Article in Press

Vibrio cholera is a Gram negative contagious water borne bacteria which is responsible for cholera outbreak all over the world. The disease spread occurs much more during summers in tropical and endemic regions. Entering dangerous waste to surface waters is a serious environmental health problem in developing countries. The aim of this study is to investigate the surface waters contamination with V. cholera in Boyer-Ahmad...
