ANTIMICROBIAL EVALUATION OF CHIRATTAI THAILAM

Abstract

C P Prince, V Gopal

The antimicrobial activity of the wound healing Siddha drug, Chirattai thailam was assayed by the agar plate disc diffusion, well diffusion method, pour plate method, direct drop method and nutrient broth dilution techniques. Test microorganisms were Staphylococcus aureus, Enterococcus faecalis, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Escherichia coli, Klebsiella pneumoniae, and Acinetobacter baumannii. All organisms were laboratory isolates from pus samples. The drug showed significant inhibited growth of test organisms especially against S. aureus. This study has justified the traditional use of this drug for the treatment for wound healing.
