Recibido: Aceptado: Abstract The essen tial oil of Foe ni cu lum vul ga re Mi ller was ana li zed by GC and GC/MS. Four teen com po nents, re pre sen ting the 99.98% of the oil, were iden ti fied; trans-aneth ole (64.08%), -ph - ella ndr ene (14.54%), and -p in ene (9.38%) were the most abun dant cons ti tuents. An ti mi cro - bial tests were ca rried out against 30 stra ins of mul ti re sis tant Gram- ne ga ti ve ba ci lli iso la ted from pa tients with no so co mial in fec tions. Re sults show that the oil exhi bi ted a strong inhi bi tory ac ti vity against all stra ins of the Gram- ne ga ti ve ba ci lli tes ted, re gardless of bac te rial spe cies, type or num ber of re sis tan ce mar kers. The se fin dings suggest that the essen tial oil of ae rial parts of Foe ni cu lum vul ga re Mi ller have inhi bi tory ac ti vity against mul ti re sis tant Gram- ne ga ti ve ba ci lli from pa tients with no so co mial in fec tions. Thus, the in ves ti ga ted essen tial oil has po ten - tial an ti bac te rial ac ti vity, which can be fur ther ex ploi ted to de ve lop new drugs to treat in fec tions pro du ced by important mul ti re sis tant Gram- ne ga ti ve hu man patho gens.

In tro duc tion The phar ma col ogi cal in dus tries have pro duced a number of new an ti bi ot ics in the last dec ade. How ever, bac te rial re sis tance is grow ing due to the in dis crimi nate use these con ven tional drugs. This has caused se vere clini cal prob lems in the treat ment of in fec - tious dis eases, par ticu lary no so comial in - fec tions that have a high mor tal ity (1-3). It is pos si ble that clini cally sig nifi cant new drugs, with an ti mi cro bial ac tiv ity and struc - tures widely dif fer ent from those of con ven - tional use, might be found in prod ucts from higher plants (2-4). Foe ni cu lum vul gare Miller is a wellknown aro matic plant be long ing to the Um - bel li farae fam ily, a small ge nus of an nual, bi en nial or per en nial herbs dis trib uted in cen tral Europe and Medi ter ra nean re gion. It is widely cul ti vated through out the tem per - ate and tropi cal re gions of the world for its aro matic fruits, which are used as a cu li nary spice (5). This aro matic plant has been in - tro duced to Vene zuela, where it is known as hi nojo, and it is used as antiinflammatory, anti- spasmodic, antidiarreic, diu retic, and to treat men strual dis tur bances (6). The pres ent in vi tro study was car ried out to es tab lish the an ti bac te rial ac tiv ity and the in flu ence of the in ocu lum size and vol ume of es sen tial oil of Foe ni cu lum vul gare Miller against mul tire sis tant Gram- negative ba cilli iso lated from pa tients with no so - comial in fec tions. Mate rials and Methods Aer ial parts of three in di vidu als of F. vul gare Miller were col lected at El Playón, Mé rida, Vene zuela at 00 m of al ti tude dur - ing the flow er ing stage on Feb ru ary 05. A voucher speci men (C. Fer ranti, ) is kept at the Her bar ium of the Fac ulty of Phar macy, of The An des Uni ver sity, Mé rida. Vene zuela. Fresh flow ers, leaves and twigs were ground and sub jected to hy dro dis til la tion for 3 hours us ing a Clevenger- type ap pa ra - tus to yield 0.% of yel lowish oil, which af - ter dry ing was sub mit ted to GC and GC/MS analy sis. A Perkin El mer Auto Sys tem gas chro ma tograph (GC), fit ted with an HP-5 (60 m x 0. mm x 0. µm film) fused sil ica capil lary col umn was used for GC/FID and Ko vats in di ces de ter mi na tion (7). The tem - pera ture pro gram used was the fol low ing: ini tial tem pera ture 60 C fol lowed by heat ing at 4 C/min to 0 C; final tem pera ture was kept for min. The in jec tion and de tec tor tem pera tures were 0 C and 0 C re spec - tively. He lium was used as the car rier gas (1.0 ml/min). Mass spec tra were ob tained on a 5973 Hew lett Packard MSD sys tem op - er at ing in the EI mode at 70 Ev, equipped with an HP- 5MS cap il lary col umn (30 m x 0. mm x 0. µm film). The oven tem pera - ture pro gram was the same used for GC analy sis. The sam ple was di luted with di - ethyl ether ( µl in 1.0 ml) and 1.0 µl was in jected at 0 C (split ra tio 1:100). The car - rier gas was He at 0.9 ml/min. The iden tity of the oil com po nents was es tab lished from their GC re ten tion in di ces (8), com pari son of their mass spec tra by li brary search (Wiley 6 th ed.), and co- chromatography with authen tic com pounds. 368 An ti bac te rial ac ti vity of essen tial oil of Foeniculum vulgare Mi ller Thirty Gram- negative ba cilli strains (15 Pseudomonas aeruginosa, 10 Acinetobacter spp and 5 Alcaligenes faecalis) re sis - tant to wide- spectrum -la ctam an ti bi ot ics and ami no gly cosides, were iso lated from blood cul tures of adult pa tients with no so - comial in fec tion at the in ten sive care unit (ICU) of The An des Uni ver sity Hos pi tal (9). P. ae rugi nosa ATCC 27853, A. bau man nii ATCC 606 and A. fae calis ATCC 8750 were used as con trol strains for sus cep ti bil - ity test ing. The in ocu lum of each iso late, pre pared by cul ture in Mueller- Hinton (Difco) broth, was in cu bated in air at 36 C for 2 hours. Cul tures were fur ther di luted in Ringer ¼ (Oxoid) to ob tain dif fer ent in ocula of ap - proxi mately 10 7, 10 5 and 10 3 cfu/ml. The bac te rial sus pen sions were in ocu lated in trip li cate in Mueller- Hinton agar (40 ml in Petri dishes) in wells with dif fer ent vol ume ca paci ties made by means of a ster ile cover mold manu fac tured ad hoc. Five dif fer ent es sen tial oil vol umes (30,,, 15 and 10 µl) were placed in the wells and sealed with ster ile par af fin to avoid oil evapo ra tion dur - ing in cu ba tion. Af ter aero bic in cu ba tion dur ing 16- h at 36 C, the agar plates were ex am ined. The rela tive sus cep ti bil ity of the or gan ism to the oil was dem on strated by the di ame ter of the clear zone of growth in hi bi - tion around the wells, which was meas ured us ing a ver nier cali pers (Mi tu toyo). Fleroxa - cin (4 µg), a fluoro qui nolone (F. Hoff man La Roche Ltd.) was used as a stan dard an ti bi - otic to con trol the sen si tiv ity of the tested mi cro or gan ism. Re sults and Dis cus sion By means of com bined GC and GC/MS, 14 com po nents (99.98% of the oil) were iden ti fied in the es sen tial oil of F. vul - gare Miller. Re sults are shown in Ta ble 1. The most im por tant con stitu ent was trans-anethole (64.08%), fol lowed by a-phe - llandrene (14.54%) and a-p inene (9.38%). The monot er pene hy dro car bon frac tion (29.30%) of the vene zue lan oil was simi lar to the val ues re ported for the es sen tial oil from It aly, but the con tent of trans-anethole and es tra gole (66.85%) was higher (10, 11). The pure es sen tial oil of F. vul gare Miller showed in hibi tory ac tiv ity against Gram- negative ba cilli of no so comial ori gin. These bac te ria show two or three re sis tance pat terns due to at least two dif fer ent an ti bi - ot ics (bbb- lactams and ami no gly cosides). The ca pac ity of the es sen tial oil to in hibit bac te rial growth as sessed by the tested in - ocula are shown in Ta ble 2. In hi bi tion of bac - te rial growth was ob served in all cases. While the es sen tial oil of F. vul gare Miller ex - hib ited slight dif fer ences of bac te rial growth in hi bi tion based on in ocu lum size be tween 10 7 and 10 5 cfu/ml, bac te rial con cen tra - tions lower than 10 5 cfu/ml also showed con sid era bly sen si tiv ity to the in hibi tory ac - tiv ity of the es sen tial oil, re gard less of bac te - rial spe cies and re sis tance pat terns, which was com pa ra ble to the strong ac tiv ity of fleroxa cin (4 µg/ml). Also, the in hibi tory ef - fect of the es sen tial oil was re lated to the vol - umes used (Ta ble 2). Re sults showed that be tween 10 to 30 µl the in hibi tory ac tiv ity in creased the in hi bi tion ha los ap proxi - mately by 0.5 mm per µl of es sen tial oil. The thirty strains of mul tire sis tant Gram- negative ba cilli stud ied were pre domi - nant nosocomial pathogens, ranking among the most fre quently iso lated bac te ria in in - ten sive care units. These patho gens showed wide re sis tance to con ven tional an ti bi ot ics (1, 9). Results ob tained in this study in di cate an ex cel lent in vi tro in hibi tory ac tiv ity against the no so comial patho gens con sid - ered in this study. It is im por tant to stress that the es sen tial oil of F. vul gare showed in - hibitory activity on sev eral Gram- negative bac te rial spe cies with dif fer ent types and number of re sis tance mark ers (9). These find ings sug gest that the es sen tial oil of aer ial parts of Foeniculum vulgare Miller have inhibitory activity against multiresistant Gram- negative ba cilli from pa tients with no - socomial infections.

Fu ture stud ies are needed to fur ther acertain the antibacterial activity of these com pounds, ei ther pure or com bined, to de - ter mine if the es sen tial oil of F. vul gare Miller might of fer new hopes to com bat mul tire sis - tant Gram- negative patho gens.
