ABSTRACT

This work investigates the antimicrobial activity of honey on Staphylococcus aureus and other bacterial pathogens associated with wound infection. The samples collected from patients with various kinds of wound at the Federal Medical Center (FMC), Umuahia, were inoculated at specific agar media that supported the growth ofthe pathogens associated with wound infection. Honey type sensitivity agar media prepared at decreasing concentration of 100%, 80%, 60%(control), 40%, 20%, 10% and 5%, containing the isolates as the inocula were incubated at 37OC for 24 hours and the Minimum Inhibitory Concentration (MIC) at the honey concentrations of interest were measured. The MIC was observed to decrease with decrease in concentration of honey. This implies that honey has some measurable level of antimicrobial activity on Staphylococcus aureus and other bacterial pathogens associated with wound.
