Antimicrobial and infected wound healing response of some traditional drugs
AM Thaker, JV Anjaria
1. Significant inhibition of growth of staphylococcus aures, streptococcus pyogenes, corynebacterium spp., escherichia coli, and pseudomonas aeruginosa was observed in vitro by traditional drugs like Ocimum Sanctum, Azadirachta indica, Annona squamosa and Bergia odorata.
2. Healing of the wound by indigenous ointment formulation was comparable to that of nitrofurazone and little better than propamidine cream in mice infected by the oraganisms. The indigenous plant material understudy showed significant inhibition of pathogenic microorganisms and effective healing of infected wounds.
