Susceptibility of multi-drug resistant oral pathogen and its biofilm formation to Rosa damascena mill


G Gengalakshmi, K Sheela, S Allimalarkodi

The Rosa Damascena is one of the most important species of Rosaceae family mainly known for its perfuming. Its major products are perfume and volatile oil. This plant contains several components like terpenes, glycosides, flavonoids, and anthocyanins that have beneficial effects on human health. This study was carried out to evaluate the effect of the flowers and leaves of Rosa damascena of various solvent extract on the oral pathogen using invitro antibacterial study and specific biofilm formation assay. The flowers and leaves of R. damascene were subjected to extraction using ethanol, methanol and distilled water by hot percolation method. All the extracts showed inhibition at minimum concentration of 25μg/ml. The aqueous extract exhibited significant anti-microbial activity and inhibition of biofilm formed by the oral pathogen. In contrast the flower extracts showed potent inhibitory effect on both oral pathogen and its biofilm formation. On a long run history in herbal remedies for tooth and gum problems, this study may add a proof in eradicating dental caries that is caused by the multi drug resistant oral pathogen.
