ABSTRACT:
Enterococci have transformed over the past century from being an intestinal commensal organism of little clinical importance to becoming the second most widespread nosocomial pathogen and is related with considerable mortality and morbidity. Apple cider vinegar (ACV) has various benefits like eliminating bad cholesterol, weight reduction, anti-aging and most importantly has anti-fungal, anti-bacterial, anti-viral and anti-cancer effects. However, the FDA has not recognised ACV as a potent anti-microbial as there isn’t scientific evidence for it. This study aims to determine its antibacterial activity against clinical isolates of E. faecalis. A sum of 20 clinical isolates of E. faecalis were detected for antibiotic sensitivity pattern followed by the determination of antibacterial efficacy using MIC method. In our study, we did not find any inhibitory activity against clinical isolates of Enterococcus species using these dilutions. In this study we did not find any inhibitory activity against Enterococcus spp using these diltutions. Perhaps, increased number of isolates with different concentrations should be incorporated to validate the result.
