Antibacterial Activity of Commercially Available Plant Extracts on Selected Campylobacter jejuni Strains
Published:May 18, 2017
1. INTRODUCTION Food contaminated with bacterial pathogens is still a problem worldwide. One method to reduce / eliminate foodborne pathogens is to add antimicrobials to food marinades . To reduce bacterial loads on meat is especially challenging because of the rich nutritional availability, pH and water activity level . Campylobacter is one of the major causes of foodborne bacterial i...

In India there is a separate veda called Ayurveda, which is more than 5000 years old in which Herbals and Plants properties are useful for man health without side effects.

I do not understand the table 1: if it is log10 CFU/ml of the culture, should there be 0 in 24 hours, shouldn´t it? At least it looks like that according to the graphs and the text in the paragraph results.
The problem is that almost everything can kill Campylobacter jejuni "in vitro". From experience, "in vivo" testing is giving totally different results. We also have observed that "in vivo" there is a very different colonization capacity and sensitivity between isolates. Quite difficult to run field trials with Campylobacter when the Campylobacter is not characterized and.
