inhibition activity , Bifidobacterium spp bacteria filtrate , cardiac catheterization, in vitro


Evaluation in vitro antibacterial activity of Bifidobacterium spp filtrate against some pathogenic bacteria isolated from patients with diagnostic and therapeutic cardiac catheterization. A total of 45 samples were collected from dairy products to isolated Bifidobacterium spp and sample collection of cardiac catheterization and estimate the inhibition activity of Bifidobacterium spp filtrate against staphylococcus aureus, Staphylococcus epidermidis, E coli, Klebsiella pneumoniae ,Proteus mirabilis , Pseudomonas aeruginosa , Enterobacter cloacae, Serratia marcescens isolated from cardiac catheterization by wells in agar.All of which showed notable sensitivity to the Bifidobacterium spp bacteria filtrate where inhibition diameters ranged between (24,25,21,24,22,32) mm, E.coli bacteria were more affected compared to other species. Bifidobacterium spp. Filtrate have antibacterial activity against the bacteria S.aureus , S.epidermidis , K.pneumoniae , E.coli , P.aeruginosa , P.mirabilis , Enterobacter cloacae and Serratia marcescens, isolated from cardiac catheterization.
