Table 3 Minimum inhibitory concentration (MICs) and minimum bactericidal concentration (MBCs) of Alkanna tinctoria (leaves) against MDR isolates

From: Alkanna tinctoria leaves extracts: a prospective remedy against multidrug resistant human pathogenic bacteria

MDR bacteria Aqueous extract (mg/ml) Chloroform extract (mg/ml) Ethanol extract (mg/ml) Hexane extract (mg/ml)
MICs MBCs MICs MBCs MICs MBCs MICs MBCs
A.baumannii 12.5 >100 25 >100 25 >100 25 >100
E. coli 25 >100 25 >100 25 >100 25 >100
P.aeruginosa 25 >100 25 >100 12.5 >100 25 >100
S. aureus 12.5 >100 12.5 >100 12.5 >100 25 >100
  1. >100 shows concentration greater than 100, + = no bacterial growth observed and - = bacterial growth observed.
