Table 3 PAEs of Acetyl-11-keto-β-boswellic acid against S.mutans ATCC 25175.

From: Acetyl-11-keto-β-boswellic acid (AKBA); targeting oral cavity pathogens

Compounds Mean PAE (h) ± SD on:
  1 × MIC 2 × MIC
Acetyl-11-keto-β-boswellic acid 3.5 ± 0.1a 5.7 ± 0.1b
Ciprofloxacin 1.4 ± 0.05a 2.2 ± 0.1b
  1. The PAEs were monitored by viable count of S. mutans after 2 h exposure to concentrations equal to MIC and 2 × MIC of antimicrobials (AKBA and ciprofloxacin). Values in the same column followed by the same superscripts are significantly different from each other (P < 0.05; Student's t test). PAE, Post antibiotic effect.
