Abstract:

Staphylococcus aureus is a smart, often drug-refractory pathogen. This necessitates use of alternate compounds as possible therapeutic options. So we tested the efficacy of extracts of betel leaf and lemon on growth, biofilm formation and virulence factors of this pathogen. Both the extracts showed marked inhibition of the pathogen at high concentrations. The extracts were also non-toxic to the host RBC and WBCs. Hence they can be considered as putative therapeutic options against this pathogen.


Keywords: Staphylococus aureus, Biofilm, Virulence.
