A Study of the Antimicrobial Potency of Adenia Cissampeloides Extracts on Bacteria and Fungi of Clinical Importance.

Okunye, O .L, Odeleye F.O, Jayeola B.M


The antimicrobial activity of extracts from Adenia cissampeloides were measured against   two Gram negative bacteria, one Gram positive bacteria  and two fungi. Ethanol, n-hexane and aqueous extracts of leaves and stem of the plant inhibited growth of the microorganisms. The phytochemical  constituents obtained from the plant at varied appreciable proportions elicited the plant potential antimicrobial and antifungal properties. The highest antimicrobial and antifungal properties was observed in the stem extract 22.39mg/ml on Staphylococcus aureus while 42.66mg/ml  and 41.69mg/ml were obtained on Candida albicans and aspergillus niger respectively The varied minimum inhibitory concentration  range,  obtained  from the crude extract of the leaves and stem against the selected isolates of bacteria and fungi further established the antimicrobial and antifungal activity .
