Antimicrobial Potential of Honey Samples of Apis cerana indica


Honey is an ancient remedy for the treatment of infected wounds, which has recently been rediscovered by the medical profession, particularly where conventional modern therapeutic agents are failing . Honey samples were collected from two different geographical regions , i.e Hill (kodaikkanal) and plain (Mannargudi) . The antimicrobial activity of honey was performed by well diffusion assay against pathogens i.e, bacteria [Bacillus subtilis, Bacillus cereus, Pseudomonas aeruginosa Enterobacter aerogenes, klebsiella], Fungi [Aspergillus niger, Aspergillus flavus, Trichoderma viride], yeast [Saccharomyces cerevisiae, candida], Actinomycetes [Streptomyces] and antibiotic sensitivity test was also performed for these pathogens using some antibiotics [Gentamycin, Auxamine, Tetracycline, Ampicillin].
