Abstract: Camels urine has numerous uses, which are beneficial for man. There is little information about the antimicrobial effects of camels urine on a pathogenic E.coli infecting human. The aim of this work was to study antimicrobial activity of camel urine against E. coli isolated from human faeces. Isolation and identification of E.coli were done by using enrichment media, selective media and biochemical test. Disc diffusion technique was used to assess the antibacterial effect of camel urine on E.coli. Five samples of camel urine were tested for their antimicrobial activity using Mueller Hinton Agar. The Results proved that camel urine at low concentrations (1:10,102,103) has no significant inhibitory effect on the growth of E. coli, while inhibition was obviously recoded after using high concentration. The study concluded that camel?s urine is effective against E .coli and can be used as an alternative for treatment of various infections caused by Entero-bacteria and some gram positive bacteria.
