<i>“In vitro”</i> activity of <i>Melaleuca cajuputi</i> against mycobacterial species

<p>The increasing incidence of resistance in tuberculosis and in atypical mycobacterial infections has prompted the search for alternative agents. We explored the antimycobacterial activity of <i>Melaleuca cajuputi</i> essential oil against tubercular and non tubercular mycobacterials isolates. The good activity observed towards <i>M. cajuputi</i> indicated that this essential oil might represent a promising antimicrobial agents, particularly in the management of microbial resistance.</p>
