Abstract

The aim of this study was to investigate the antibacterial activity of Lymnaea auricularia (snail) tissue

powder and shell powder against different human pathogenic bacteria (Escherichia Coli, Pseudomonas

aeruginoa and Klebsiella pneumonia). Four concentration was tested (75,100.125,150) mg\ml of the powder

with well diffusion assay. The highest activity of shell powder was in E. Coli at 75mg\ml concentration(19mm)

inhibition zone, while the highest activity of tissue powder was in P. aeruginoa at 150mg\ml concentration

with inhibition zone (28 mm). The powder extracts ‘ antimicrobial activity reveals that they may have

biologically active metabolites.
