Antibacterial activity of an aqueous extract of Petroselinum crispum leaves against pathogenic bacteria isolated from patients with burns infections in Al-najaf Governorate, Iraq

The purpose of this study was to investigate, by use of the agar well diffusion method, the ability of cold-water and hot-water extracts of Petroselinum crispum leaves to inhibit bacteria isolated from patients with burns infections. The results revealed that 250 mg/ml of the hot-water extract was the more effective inhibitor of the growth of P. aeruginosa. The inhibition zone diameter of 29.667 mm was significantly different (P\ 0.05) from that for nitrofurantoin, chosen as positive control. From the overall results obtained it is evident that the plant screened has anti-bacterial activity against some bacteria associated with burns infections.
