Abstract
Aqueous extracts of the barks of Azadirachta indica, Parkia biglobosa, Anogeissus leiocarpus, Vitellaria paradoxa, Kaya senegalensis, red potash and their combination, (a Kamue antityphoid traditional medicine), were investigated for antimicrobial activities on Salmonella typhi, Eschericia coli and Pseudomonas species using the disk diffusion method. E. coli, Pseudomonas spp. and S. typhi showed strong vulnerability to A. leiocarpus and A. indica extracts. The highest activity was with A. leiocarpus in E. coli, Pseudomonas spp. and S. typhi with comparable activity to the standard antibiotics. Phytochemical analysis showed the presence tannins, saponins and anthraquinones among others. Elemental analysis of the red potash showed the presence K and Na in concentrations of 0.424 and 0.163 ppm, respectively. The haemolytic analysis conducted with rat?s whole blood, showed agglutination of RBC with V. paradoxa, A. leiocarpus, K.senegalensis andthe concoction at concentrations of 63 and 125 mg. This study showed that, ?Kamue antityphoid concoction? is an effective antibiotic.
