Water quality and treatment is becoming of great concern, especially in developing country like Nigeria where water quality is poor and not properly treated. It is in this light that this research was carried out to confirm the effectiveness of powdered extracted from matured dried Moringa oleifera seed which is commonly available in most rural com...
Article
Full-text available
The purpose of this research is to assess the effect of Antibacterial photo-dynamic inhibition technique(APDT) in combating multiple resistance clinical isolates (MDRCI). The era of antibiotic resistance opened new doors for scientists in the discovery of new antibiotics and new more chemotherapeutic agents, these discoveries lead to easy treatment...
Article
Full-text available
The emergence and spread of multidrug-resistant (MDR) bacteria to commonly used antibiotics is a severe health problem and a major challenge to global drug discovery. Plasmid-mediated multidrug resistance is one of the most imperative tribulations in the treatment of infectious diseases. The use of plasmid curing agents in association with antibiot...

The use of plants as medicines is an ancient practice common to especially Nigeria and Africa at large. The purpose of this research work is to evaluate the zones of inhibition, phytochemical screening and molecular docking (In-silico Approach) of Piptadeniastrum africanum against selected clinical and multiple antibiotic resistant isolates. Using...
