Capsaicin’s Inhibition Effects on Biofilm Aerococcus Viridans
Keywords:UTI; antibiotic resistance; Bioterrorism; ELISA; traditional herbal medicine.
Introduction: Aerococci has colony shape with Streptococcus viridans, so that it is usually missdiagnosed
between of them. It has high difficulty on its identification, because it is rarely to be found and resistant of
Antibiotic grup, called penicilin and vancomycin.
Material and Method: This research used two kinds of samples, such as: fried food sold on the road and toothbrush
obtained from ten respondens. Then, it needs inducing its biofilm and measuring by Tissue Culture Plate (TCP)
methode and ELISA.
Result: ANOVA one-way revealed that extract capsaicin has anti biofilm effect on 12.5% concentration with
p=0,0000 (p<0,05) among each group.
Conclusion: Extract capsaicin can be used as an alternative herbal agent to treat infection caused by Aerococcus
viridans because it has antibiofilm effect. As known before, biofilm causes antibiotic resistance to treat
Aerococcus viridans’s infection.
