  The aim of this study is the evaluation of the antibacterial activity of cumin essential oil on burn isolates of P. aeruginosa. Fifty two burn isolates of P. aeruginosa were obtained from burn wards of two hospitals at Tehran, Iran. The susceptibility of isolates was determined using a broth microdilution method. Minimum Inhibitory Concentration (MIC) and Minimum Bactericidal Concentration (MBC) of isolates to cumin essential oil was determined. The susceptibilities of isolates to different antibiotics were tested using agar disk diffusion method. The rates of resistances were determined to antibiotics as follows: Gentamicin 96%, ceftazidime 100%, tobramycin 100%, kanamycin 100%, amikacin 73%, ceftizoxime 100%, piperacillin 94.2%, imipenem 50% and ciprofloxacin 71%. Cumin essential oils possessed antibacterial effect against all isolates of P. aeruginosa, with MIC and MBC values in the range of 0.015 to 0. 25 ml mL-1. These results suggest the potential use of the cumin essential oil for the control of P. aeruginosa infections.

  In this research we evaluated the antibacterial activity of water soluble green tea extracts on isolates of Acinetobacter. A total of 20 strains were collected from burn wounds at different hospitals in Tehran, Iran. The susceptibilities of isolates to different antibiotics were tested using agar disk diffusion method. Antibacterial activity of water soluble green tea extract was measured by Minimum Bactericidal Concentrations (MBCs). Seventy five percent of isolated strains showed resistance to at least 12 antibiotics or more and all the strains were Multi-drug Resistant (MDR) strains. The average MBCs of the extract against all strains of Acinetobacter were 387.5±127.6 μg mL-1. Present study suggests that green tea has significant bactericidal action on multi-drug resistant strains of Acinetobacter.

  The aim of the present study was the evaluation of the antibacterial activity of Fennel essential oil on isolates of Acinetobacter baumannii. Forty eight isolates were collected from clinical specimens from burn wards of hospitals in Tehran, Iran between April and September, 2006. The susceptibility of isolates was determined using a broth microdilution method. Minimum Inhibitory Concentration (MIC) and Minimum Bactericidal Concentration (MBC) of isolates to Fennel essential oil were determined. The susceptibilities of isolates to different antibiotics were tested using agar disk diffusion method. The rates of resistance were determined to antibiotics as follows: cefazolin 100%, ciprofloxacin 100%, ofloxacin 95.8%, kanamycin 95.8%, carbenicillin 93.7%, ticarcillin 93.7%, piperacillin 88.9%, co-trimoxazole 79.1%, ceftizoxime 75%, gentamicin 70.8%, cefalotin 60.4%, amikacin 52% and imipenem 14.6%. Fennel essential oil possessed antibacterial effect against all isolates of A. baumannii. These results suggest the potential use of the Fennel essential oil for the control of multi-drug resistant A. baumannii infections. However, more adequate studies must be carried out to verify the possibility of using it for fighting bacterial infections in human.
