Clove extracts (petroleum ether, chloroform and ethanol extracts) were tested in vitro for their antibacterial activity against forty isolates of pathogenic bacteria including clinically resistant (resistant to ampicillin and nalidixic acid) strains of twenty-five Shigella and four Vibrio cholerae. All of the isolates except Pseudomonas aeruginosa showed promising sensitivity to the extracts.
