Abstract:

The emergence and spread of antibiotic resistance, as well as the evolution of new strains of disease causing agents, are of great concern to the global health community. Commonly used medicinal plants of our community could be an excellent source of drugs to fight off this problem. This study is focused on exploring the antimicrobial property of Cinnamomum cassia (Cinnamon) bark extracts. Methanol and aqueous extract was used for this study. Extraction was done by cold percolation method. Antimicrobial activity was measured against four microbial strains: E. coli, B. subtilis, Enterobacter and P. chrysogenum. Extracts were diluted by serial dilution. Minimum inhibitory concentration (MIC) was measured by using spectrophotometer (OD at 600 nm). Methanol extract had antimicrobial property against B. subtilis and Enterobacter; while aqueous extract was active against E. coli, B. subtilis and P. chrysogenum. The experiment confirmed the efficacy of Cinnamon extracts as natural antimicrobials and suggested the possibility of employing them in drugs for the treatment of infectious diseases caused by the test organisms.
