Background : Biofilms directly influence the virulence and pathogenicity of a pathogen, it is optimal to employ a strategy that effectively inhibits the formation of biofilm. In this study, the antibacterial and anti-biofilm activities of extract Capsicum annuum L were examined.
Materials and Methods : The eight strains were isolated from urine culture of hospitalized patients growth and biofilm formation of strains were determined by microtiterplate method.
Results : The results revealed that the concentrations of 5 and 10 mg/mL are the most restrain in the biofilm formation of the isolated plates.
Conclusion : Results of this study suggest that the extract of C. annuum L may be useful alone to treat bacterial infections.
Keywords: Capsicum annuum L, Antibacterial activity, Antibiofilm activity, Microtiter plate
