Abstract:

Mastitis is one of the major factors obstructing the progress of the dairy industry. The use of antibiotics has been related with antibiotic-resistant pathogens. Consequently, several studies have been done in order to find natural alternatives. One of these alternatives is propolis which has been identified as an appropriate option according to recent studies of antibacterial, antiviral, antifungal, and antiprotozoal activity. The aim of this study was to test In Vitro the antimicrobial activities of some commercial antibiotics and methanol extract of Indian propolis (MEIP) against Staphylococcus spp. Isolated from mastitis-infected cow milk from the Gowshala (dairy farm), Department of Animal Husbandry and Dairying, Institute of Agricultural Sciences, Banaras Hindu University, Varanasi, India. The effectiveness of antibiotics and MEIP in inhibiting growth of Staphylococcus spp. was Ciprofioxacin 5μ, Norfloxacin 10μ, Erythromycin 15μ, Doxyciclin 30μ, Lincomycin 2μ, Offloxacin 5μ and Cefalexin 30μ are susceptible, while Bactrin 25μ, Ceftioxone 30μ, Gentamycin 10μ, Clarithromycin 15μ and Azithromycin 15μ besides MEIP are intermediate and Cefradine 30μ, Cloxacillin 30μ and Amoxycillin 10μ are resistant.
