RAW 264.7 cells infected with Mycobacterium fortuitum with a MOI 1:5 (cells:bacilli) were exposed to several concentrations of extract and rifampicin (0.5X, 1X, 2X and 4X MICs, 0 = untreated control) in triplicate. After 2, 4 and 6 days post infection, cells were lysed and plated on 7H10 agar to determine CFU/mL. Plots detail the bactericidal activity of extract of O. speciosus (a) and rifampicin (b) used as the reference positive control antibiotic. Values represent means ± SD
