Abstract

Among the freshwater edible snail Bellamya bengalensis has potential nutritional and medicinal importance. Especially people suffering with anaemia, malformation of bone structure, treatment of eye problems, consume its meat and soup with belief to restore their health. Standard disc diffusion method was carried out for screening of antibacterial activities. The Escherichia coli showed maximum susceptibility of (14.66±57mm) inhibition zone and ciprofloxacin drug used as + control and it showed (16.66±0.58mm) inhibition zone. Staphylococcus. aureus showed (12.66±57) and Proteus vulgaris showed(12.33±58) inhibition zone respectively . Statistical analysis showed that E.coli, S. aureus and P.vulgaris had lesser antibacterial efficacy than +ve control (P<0.05, P<0.001 and P<0.01) at 5%, 0.1% and 1% respectively. Statistical analysis also showed that mucus from B.bengalensis had more antibacterial efficacy in E.coli than S.aureus and P.vulgaris (P<0.05). In both bacteria, S. aureus and P.vulgaris showed no significant difference, both showed same efficacy, mucus also showed an increase in antibacterial activity with increase in concentration. Therefore, they can be use to treat E.coli, S.aureus and P.vulgaris pathogenic infections and it will be boon for our society.

Key Words
