SYNERGISTIC ANTIMICROBIAL EFFECT OF COW URINE AND AZADIRACHTA INDICA ON INFECTIOUS MICROBESAbstract
The study is aimed towards studying synergistic antimicrobial effect of cow urine and Azadirachta indica against bacterial, fungal and yeast strains. Mother Nature is the best healer. Last few decades have seen tremendous development in pharma sector. Even though these industries have produced a large number of new drugs and new antibiotics and so does the resistance among microbes is growing. Bacterial strains used were Streptomyces aureofaciens (MTCC 325), E.coli (MTCC 448), Streptococcus mutans (MTCC 497) and Pseudomonas aeruginosa (MTCC 7093). Fungal strains used were Candida albicans (MTCC183) and yeasts like Candida paraopsilosis (MTCC 1965), Candida tropicalis (MTCC 184), and Candida glabrata (MTCC 3019). When equilibrated amount of cow urine is used with Azadirachta indica remarkable synergistic effects were observed in the case of C. tropicalis, C. glabrata, P. aeruginosa, S. aureofaciens.
