Abstract

Fifty five seaweed extracts belonging to 11 species of seaweeds were tested against post operative infectious drug resistant bacteria viz., E. coli, Klebsiella pneumoniae, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Streptococcus pyogens, Staphylococcus aureus. Among the seaweed extracts, the acetone extracts of Caulerpa cupressoides shows maximum inhibtory activity against E. coli and propanol extracts of Gracilaria edulis shows maximum inhibitory effect against K. pneumoniae. Acetone extracts of Padina tetrastromatica and Laurencia cruciata show maximum inhibitory activity against P. aeruginosa, butanol extracts of Hypnea musciformis, Caulerpa cupressoides and Chaetomorpha linoides show maximum inhibitory effect against S. aureus.
