Abstract

Ethyl acetate(EA) extract of the stem bark of Cylicodiscus gabunensis check for this species in other resources (CG) was analysed phytochemically and evaluated for its antimicrobial activity against 17 pathogenic species isolated from patient: Escherichia coli check for this species in other resources , Klebsiella pneumoniae check for this species in other resources , Shigella dysenteriae check for this species in other resources , Shigella flexneri check for this species in other resources , Morganella morganii check for this species in other resources , Proteus vulgaris check for this species in other resources , Proteus mirabilis check for this species in other resources , Salmonella typhi check for this species in other resources , Citrobacter freundii check for this species in other resources , Enterobacter cloacae check for this species in other resources , Enterobacter agglomerans check for this species in other resources , Staphylococcus aureus check for this species in other resources , Streptococcus feacalis check for this species in other resources , Pseudomonas aeruginosa check for this species in other resources , Bacillus cereus check for this species in other resources , Candida albicans check for this species in other resources and Candida glabrata check for this species in other resources . Flavonoids, saponins, tannins, polyphenols, coumarins, triterpenes and/or sterols and reducing sugars were detected in the (EA) extract of CG. The best MIC and MBC values for the microorganisms sensitive to the extract were 0.00078 and 0.00315 mg/ml respectively. The greater and remarkable antimicrobial activity of the (EA) extract of CG was recorded with Staphylococcus aureus check for this species in other resources , Proteus vulgaris and Bacillus cereus T. These results provide a rationalization for the traditional use of this plant for the treatment of infections diseases.
