Abstract:

This paper was carried out for detection some types of bacteria in patients with kidney stones and the use of corn silk extracts to effectively inhibit the urease enzyme in Klebsiella Species. However, the urine culture was performed for 100 patients with kidney stones, making sure that the patients did not take any anti - bacterial medication. The results showed that 71% of the patients have no growth in their urine culture and 29% have positive urine culture (13%, 10%, 5% and 1% of Klebsiella, E. coli, Proteus, and Pseudomonas) respectively. All such extracts revealed an effective inhibition of urease enzyme in the Klebsiella species with (IC50 = 235.9, 305.5 and 247. 3 mg/L) for 99.9% ethanol, 80% ethanol and aqueous extracts respectively, while standard urease inhibitor exhibits (IC50 = 138.1 mg/L) for thiourea (TU) as an example.
