Article
Full-text available
The fungal keratitis (FK) infections that cause cornea inflammations are more virulent than other bacterial keratitis infections and remain one of the most ethereal and challenging infections for ophthalmologists to diagnose and treat. Thus, the urgency in understanding the current perspectives of antifungal agents and their interactions with novel...
Article
Abstract An in vitro antimicrobial activity and phytochemical analysis of various extracts of Indigofera trita L. viz. petroleum ether, chloroform, acetone, ethanol and aqueous extracts were carried out. A total of 21 microorganisms (19 bacteria and 2 fungal strains) were used for antimicrobial activity by disc diffusion method and a standard proc...

In this study, 2, 617 urine samples were collected from the clinically suspected patients and examined the prevalence and antifungal susceptibility pattern of Candida dubliniensis. In this study, overall prevalence of C. dubliniensis is 0.34%.The phenotypic identification methods for C. dubliniensis included germ tube test, production of rough colo...
Article

Objective: Emergence of extended-spectrum beta-lactamases (ESBLs) production poses another clinical problem with Gram-negative bacterial infections. The present study was aimed to evaluate the ESBL producers among various clinical samples of clinically suspected patients.Methods: A total of 1279 samples (urine [918], pus [207] and stool [154]) were...
Article
Full-text available
Objective: Fungal infections are caused by Candida species are increasing mainly in immunocompromised patients. Among Candida species, Candida dubliniensis has recently increasing opportunistic pathogenic yeast. The present study was aimed to assess the incidence and virulence factors of C. dubliniensis isolated from urine samples of various hospit...

Objective: To investigate the antimicrobial potentiality of two medicinal plants namely Aristolochia krisagathra and Thottea ponmudiana against 12 bacteria and 2 fungi. Methods: The Staphylococcus aureus (S. aureus) (MTCC 96), Staphylococcus epidermidis (S. epidermidis) (MTCC 435), Bacillus subtilis (B. subtilis) (MTCC 121), Escherichia coli (E. co...
Article
The search for new substances with antimicrobial properties has become necessary due to the microbial capacity of resistance. Medicinal plants have become an important substitute since many plants exhibit antimicrobial activity. In this study, the ethanolic flower extracts of Punica granatum were assessed for their phytoconstituents and the antimic...
Article
Full-text available
The incidence of fungal infections has increased significantly, so contributing to morbidity and mortality. This is caused by an increase in antimicrobial resistance and the restricted number of antifungal drugs, which retain many side effects. An increasing prevalence of infections caused by newer emerging fungal pathogens has been detected in hum...
Article
Full-text available
An alarming increase in biofilm forming methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) possesses a serious problem in hospital environment demands a renewed effort to seek agents from natural system that are effective against pathogenic bacteria resistant to current antimicrobials. In the study, the distribution of biofilm forming MRSA and the...
Article
Full-text available
Objective: The ESBL producing organisms has been steadily increasing over the past years. The detection and treatment of these ESBL organisms are extremely limited. In the present study, to determine the Extended Spectrum Beta Lactamases producing organism which were isolated from various samples of Multispeciality hospital in Salem, India. Methods...

Pomegranate, Punica granatum L. is frequently used for the treatment of gastero-intestinal resistant organisms, oral bacteria, highly pathogenic and antibiotic-resistant organisms (Salmonellae and Pseudomonas aeruginosa) and a few skin infecting pathogens, including fungus and methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA). In this study, an in...

Objective To investigate antimicrobial effects of ethanolic and aqueous extracts of Salacia chinensis (S. chinensis) Linn. against pathogenic bacteria and fungi.Methods The Staphylococcus aureus (S. aureus) (MTCC 96), Staphylococcus epidermidis (S. epidermidis) (MTCC 435), Bacillus subtilis (B. subtilis) (MTCC 121), Escherichia coli (E. coli) (MTCC...
Article
Full-text available
An in-vitro antimicrobial study was done using methanolic and petroleum ether extracts from the leaves of Wrightia tinctoria (Roxb.) R.Br. Bauer-Kirby (disc diffusion) and broth dilution methods were employed for the assessment of antimicrobial activity against 14 microorganisms. Methanolic extract of Wrightia tinctoria leaves showed significant an...
