Abstract:

Broccoli is an edible green plant in the cabbage family and possesses antibacterial activity against wide range of bacterial pathogens. In the present study antibacterial activity of Broccoli extracts in Methanol and Distilled Water was evaluated against skin infection causing Pseudomonas aeruginosa. Antibiotic susceptibility test showed that 100% Pseudomonas aeruginosa strains were found to be sensitive to Meropenem followed by 40% to Cefixime. However, all the strains of Pseudomonas aeruginosa were resistant to Amoxyclav, Carbenicillin and Piperacillin each. Antibacterial activity of Broccoli extracts showed that all Pseudomonas aeruginosa (100%) were resistant to Distilled Water extracts. However, Broccoli flower extract was effective against 60% Pseudomonas aeruginosa followed by stem extract and leaves extract 20% each. Phytochemical analysis of Broccoli extracts showed the presence of Flavonoids, Glycosides, Saponins, Steroids and Terpenoids.
