Antibacterial activities of sea cucumber (Holothuroidea) in poultry.


Wan Idris, Wan Shafyruddin and Zakaria, Zunita and Bejo, Siti Khairani (2011) Antibacterial activities of sea cucumber (Holothuroidea) in poultry. In: 6th Proceedings of the Seminar on Veterinary Sciences, 11-14 Jan. 2011, Kuala Lumpur. .


The antibacterial activities of sea cucumber (Holothuroidea) were studied. Three commercialized sea cucumber products and one dried sea cucumber were tested for antibacterial activities against six clinical isolates of common pathogenic bacteria causing diseases in poultry using Disc Diffusion Method (Kirby-Bauer Method). Only one commercial product; “Gamat Gel” produced inhibition zones towards 5 tested bacteria namely Escherichia coli, Salmonella sp., Pasteurella multocida, Staphylococcus aureus, and Streptococcus sp. in the initial susceptibility test. The biggest inhibition zones were produced against Pasteurella multocida, while smallest inhibition zones were produced against Streptococcus sp. No inhibition zone was produced against Pseudomonas aeruginosa. The determination of Minimal Inhibitory Concentration (MIC) of the Gamat Gel was carried out. It was found that the MIC value for all test bacteria were more than 1/12.
