Abstract:
One of the causes of male infertility factor is venereal diseases. Cissus populnea and Sesamum radiatum are two tropical medicinal plants used to correct male infertility factor. The aim of this study was to extract the essential oil from the stem powder of C. populnea and the leaves of S. radiatum and screen them for antimicrobial activity. The essential oil from the two plants were obtained by hydro-distillation and were both found to inhibit the growth of Gram-negative and Gram-positive bacteria including Citrobacter sp., Escherichia coli, Escherichia coli ATCC 25922, Klebsiella pneumoniae, Proteus mirabilis, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Staphylococcus albus and Staphylococcus aureus. The essential oil from C. populnea was in addition found to be active against Enterococcus faecalis, Staphylococcus aureus ATCC 25923 while the essential oil from S. radiatum was found to be active against Serratia marcescens. The essential oil samples from the two plants were both inactive against Candida albicans. The results confirm the antimicrobial properties of the essential oil from the two plants and hence, these plants may correct male infertility factor arising from bacterial infection.
