Antagonistic Effect of Camel’s Urine on Some Pathogenic Bacterial Species

Abstract:

This work was designed to study antagonistic effect of camel’s urine on some pathogenic bacterial species. The best effect of camel’s urine was shown by camel’s sterilized urine followed by the heated urine while, the least effect was by the raw urine. The antibacterial activity of camel’s urine was very slightly and determinedly evident after 48 hours of incubation against Staphylococcus aureus, Micrococcus lotus, Bacillus cereus, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Salmonella sp. and Escherichia coli. However, it was observed that the antibacterial activity of camel’s urine induced discriminatively marked inhibition zones of growth after 72h of incubation. The most microbes detected after 72h incubation were mainly Escherichia coli, Bacillus cereus, and Micrococcus lotus. It could be concluded that the  camel’s urine have antimicrobial activities and resistance against the bacterial growth in the early stage of incubation, but the inhibitory effects of this urine on the bacterial growth were distinct after 72h of incubation.

Keywords: Camel’s urine, antagonistic effect, Staphylococcus aureus, Micrococcus lotus, Bacillus cereus, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Salmonella sp, Escherichia coli
