*Chandrasekaran Swaminathan and Jayaraman Suja

ABSTRACT

Cow urine (gomutra) has been elaborately explained in Ayurveda and described in “Sushruta Samhita” and “Ashtanga Sangraha” as an effective medicinal secretion of animal origin with numerous therapeutic values. The present study was undertaken to explore the antimicrobial potential of photoactivated cow urine against pathogenic microorganisms. The antimicrobial activity of photoactivated cow urine was tested against Proteus mirabilis, Salmonella typhimurium, Aeromonas hydrophila, Candida albicans, Candida tropicalis and Candida parapsilosis by cup-plate agar diffusion method. Photoactivated urine exhibited most significant antibacterial and antifungal activity against tested bacterial and fungal pathogens. The results of the present study conclude that photoactivated cow urine possess good inhibitory activities against tested microbial strains and can be used to control infection caused by these microorganisms.
