LOGUERCIO, Andrea Pinto et al. In vitro activity of propolis extract against bovine mastitis bacterial agents. Pesq. agropec. bras. [online]. 2006, vol.41, n.2, pp. 347-349. ISSN 1678-3921. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0100-204X2006000200021.
The present study aimed to determine the in vitro activity of propolis extract, comparing it to the most common antibacterial drugs against bovine mastitis bacterial agents. Thirty-six isolates of coagulase-positive Staphylococcus sp. and twenty-seven of Streptococcus sp. were analyzed. Coagulase-positive Staphylococcus (94.4%) and Streptococcus sp. (85.2%) showed susceptibility to propolis extract.
