6. RESULTS AND DISCUSSION

All the results generated from the present study are represented in the respective tables. The powdered gum of Acacia arabica was subjected to preliminary organoleptic evaluation.
The scanty availability of information on this plant facilitates the study on it. The attempt is made to study the Pharmacognostical, phytochemical and pharmacological activities of gum of the plant. The study was divided into three major parts viz.

• Pharmacognostical studies
• Phytochemical screening
• Pharmacological studies.

    2. In this study, the WHC found (8.06, 8.61, 9.67, 10.65 gram of H2O/gram of sample) and OHC (3.0, 2.92, 3.42 and 3.91 gram of oil/gram of sample) to the respective temperatures of (25 ℃, 40 ℃, 60 ℃ and 80 ℃). The average swelling capacity of dried laver at 25 ℃ was found to be (0.69–0.75 mL/g of sample). Table 5 showed gelling properties of the dried laver powder in the present study. A lower least gelling capacity suggests a better capacity for the material to gel formation.…

    2- Candida albicans: Regarding the effect of the tested herbal oils on Candida albicans the results showed that, coconut oil had a statistically significant high inhibitory effect on the organism with decrease in number of CFU from 500 to 62.3 and 63.3 and % of reduction 87.5 and 87.3 %after 2 and 24 hours contact period consecutively (1 & 2) & fig. (1)) and (fig 3 A & B). Meanwhile Nigella sativa oil showed no effect on this organism (1 & 2) & fig. (1)) and (fig 3 C & D). By comparing the antimicrobial effect of these two herbal oils versus our gold standard Chlorhexidine gluconate 0.2% the later showed superior results on all tested microorganisms with decrease in number of CFU from 500 to 2.7, 2, 2 and a % of reduction 99.5, 99.6 and 99.6 % for SM, LB, and Candida species at 2 and 24 hrs.…

    The disc containing solvent is determined as negative control and a disc with extract and an inhibitory concentration (sub-Mic) was recorded as positive control. Then diameter of zone growth inhibition was measured after 24 hours of incubation at 37 °C. To study on the interactions effect between of methanol extract of bottlebrush and antibiotic, was used Vancomaycin 30 μg/disc and Ciprofloxacin 5 μg/disc antibiotic disc.22 Statistical Analysis: experiments were based on a repeated triple testing. The results were averaged and standard deviation of the changes was estimated. A comparison of the antibacterial activity of the samples with standard antibiotics was evaluated by applying t-test and ANOVA…
