  The aim of present study evaluate to the antibacterial activity of chloroformic garlic 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 garlic extracts 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 chloroformic garlic extract and Allicin content against all strains of Acinetobacter sp. was 3.28±2.73 and 5.57±4.63 μg mL-1, respectively. Present study suggests that garlic chloroformic extract has significant bactericidal action on multi-drug resistant strains of Acinetobacter.

  The aim of this study is the evaluation of the synergistic effect of sub-MIC doses of ciprofloxacin with water soluble green tea extract against urinary tract isolates of E. coli. A total of 18 isolates were collected from urine specimens submitted to a clinical diagnostic Laboratory in Urmia, Iran. The amounts of MIC and MBC for green tea water extract, ciprofloxacin or a mixture of green tea with sub-MIC doses of ciprofloxacin were determined and three groups were compared. The Synergism between ciprofloxacin and water soluble green tea extracts were seen for 93.7% (15 of 16 tested) of bacterial isolates. This study suggests that combination of water soluble green tea extracts and ciprofloxacin has in vitro synergistic effect on urinary tract isolated E. coli.
