Rosa foetida Herrm. flowers as a future natural antibacterial agent against the main cause of skin burn wound infections, Pseudomonas aeroginosa.
Background & Aim:Belongs to Rosaecea family, Rosa foetida is one the Persian native plants which has not been investigated biologically. As it is traditionally used topically as poultice to treat infectious skin burns, the present paper focused on the assessment of the antibacterial activities of different extracts of R. foetida flowers against the main cause of skin burn wounds infections, Pseudomonas aeruginosa. Experimental: The antibacterial activity and MIC value determination were investigated by cup plate method and micro plate dilution method respectively. Results: All R. foetid extracts had inhibition activity on the growth of P. aeruginosa of which the aqueous and methanol extracts exhibited the strongest activities. Inhibition zone diameter and MIC values of the concentration of 125 mg/ml of both extracts were found to be somehow the same as those of the standard drug, Imipenem/Cilastatin (8/8 μg/ml). Recommended applications/industries: Results demonstrated that the plant is effective against the standard and pathogenic strains of P. aeruginosa and could be a potential source of effective natural antibacterial compounds to be applied in further phytochemical and invivo biological studies.

In vitro antibacterial activity of curcumin-meropenem combination against extensively drug-resistant (XDR) bacteria isolated from burn wound infections
Objective: Burn wound infection is a severe complication of thermal injury. Patients with severe burn injuries need urgent care to diminish complications after severe burns. Wound infections are commonly considered one of the most serious burn complications, particularly those that are caused by extensively drug-resistant (XDR) bacteria with few therapeutic choices. The objective of this study ...متن کامل
Aloe vera Gel: Effective Therapeutic Agent against Multidrug-Resistant Pseudomonas aeruginosa Isolates Recovered from Burn Wound Infections
Objective. Aloe vera is an herbal medicinal plant with biological activities, such as antimicrobial, anticancer, anti-inflammatory, and antidiabetic ones, and immunomodulatory properties. The purpose of this study was investigation of in vitro antimicrobial activity of A. vera gel against multidrug-resistant (MDR) Pseudomonas aeruginosa isolated from patients with burn wound infections. Methods...متن کامل
Background: Ethnomedicinal plants are of interest for treatment of various wound types. Objective: This study aimed to evaluate burn wound healing potential of the hydro-alcoholic extract of the flowers of Lilium candidum L. in rats. Methods: DPPH free radical scavenging power, total flavonoids, and the phenolic content of the extract were evaluated. Following burn wound induction, 30 Wistar ra...متن کامل
Antibacterial effect of alternating current against Staphylococcus aureus and Pseudomonas aeroginosa
Background — The use of physical means as an aid for modern medicine in the champion against pathogenic microorganisms holds new approach that recently have begun to be widely recognized. The use of an additional physical means, alternating currents, introduced to inhibit bacterial growth and enhance disinfectant potency. The present study aimed to determine the best frequency of alternating cu...متن کامل
