Author(s): Tanya Kharadi, M Salim and IP Kumhar
Abstract: This work describes the in-vitro screening of anti microbial activity of frankincense of Boswellia serrata. Different concentrations (25, 50, 75 and 100 mg /ml) was evaluated for the investigation of antimicrobial efficacy using Gram positive (Bacillus subtilis, Staphylococcus aureus and Streptococcus pneumonia) and Gram negative (E. coli, Klebsiella pneumonia, Enterobacter aerogenes, Pseudomonas aeruginosa and Proteus vulgaris) microbes. Inhibition halos were evaluated and compared with antibiotic Ciprofloxacin (5µg/ml) as positive control. DMSO was used as a negative control. Results demonstrated significant antimicrobial activity. In this assay, extracts of frankincense showed antimicrobial activity comparable with standard and can be used in combating the bacterial infested diseases caused by the studied bacterial strains.
