The aims of this study were to evaluate the antimicrobial potential of propolis extract by determining the minimum bactericidal concentration (MBC) for coagulase-positive Staphylococcus isolates (Staphylococcus aureus and Staphylococcus intermedius) and the minimum fungicidal concentration (MFC) for Malassezia pachydermatis isolates. The microorganisms were assayed using broth microdilution techniques. The MBC90 was 21mgmL-1, and the MFC90 was 5.3mgmL-1. The propolis extract was found to exhibit antimicrobial activity against both pathogens.
- Staphylococcus aureus
- Staphylococcus intermedius
