ANTIMICROBIAL EFFECT OF HONEY ON MRSA ISOLATED FROM PUS SAMPLES

Abstract

Aksha Patel, Poonam B Chauhan

The genus Staphylococcus is widely distributed in nature. S. aureus is a normal flora of skin and nasal passages. In present study methicillin resistance S. aureus was isolated and their antibiotic susceptibility test was done. A total of 64 staphylococci were isolated from 120 clinical specimens of pus samples. Among them 24 isolates were coagulase positive S. aureus and 40 isolates were methicillin resistance. Antimicrobial susceptibility testing revealed that methicillin resistance strain shows significantly resistance to other commonly used antibiotics like tetracycline and vancomycin. All the isolates were sensitive to ampicillin. Antimicrobial effect of honey on MRSA shows that maximum isolates were inhibited at 10% (v v-1 ) concentration of honey.
