Abstract

Dr. Radhika S.*, Dr. V. Shreeshananda Sharma and Dr. S. Satish

Abstract

Antimicrobials are the agents that destroy or inhibit the growth of a microbe. Sarvangasundari Gutika is an Ayrveduic medicine which constitutes Bhallataka (Semecarpus anacardium Linn.) as a major ingredient. This formulation is specifically indicated for the treatment of skin diseases in the classical text of Yogaratnakara. Its antimicrobial evaluation was done by using Agar Disc Diffusion Assay and Broth Dilution Assay against the bacteria Staphylococcus aureus and fungus Candida albicans. The use of drug was done in the concentration of 10 μL, 25 μL, 50 μL, 100 μL in Agar Disc Diffusion Assay and 400 μg, 200μg, 100 μg, and 50 μg in Broth dilution Assay. After experimental study, the drug was effective on the bacteria at a concentration of 200 μg but failed to show its action against the fungus. It is concluded that Sarvangasundari Gutika has antibacterial activity against gram positive bacteria(Staphylococcus aureus).

Keywords: Antimicrobial, Sarvangasundari Gutika, Staphylococcus aureus, Candida albicans.
