Abstract

Intramammary infections caused by some stands of Escherichia coli have been known to acquire antibiotic resistance. Therefore, other methods should be sought out to find an effective therapy that does not include antibiotics. Information on how anti-inflammatories coupled with homeopathic practices affect Escherichia coli is insufficient. The objective of this experiment is to discover whether anti-inflammatories and organic compounds combined would have a detrimental effect on Escherichia coli. The Escherichia coli inhibiting power was evaluated both individually and combination of banamine, dexamethasone with either cinnamomum cassia oil or aromatic turmeric (curcuma aromatica) extract. Paper disks (8mm) was saturated in the different solutions and placed directly onto a lawn of Escherichia coli housed in a petri dish for each trial. Antibacterial activity results are presented here.
