Abstract

Modern science has made tremendous progress and acquired deep knowledge about Micro-organisms. But still infections caused by these, still ranks very high as a cause of death in the world. Even though there are number of Antibiotics present and new are being developed, the Micro-organisms are developing resistance towards these Antibiotics, hence there is need to find out a better medicine which can contradict all the Micro-organisms. In Ayurveda various formulations are mentioned and well documented, those are having the antimicrobial effect. This is the time to re-establish the effect of antimicrobial agents by proving it clinically or experimentally. Their effect will be evaluated by comparing with the standard drugs (Ciprofloxacin, Ampicillin,) which are in use now. The formulation taken for the study is Bhagottargutika. Its antimicrobial study will be done experimentally by adopting cup-plate diffusion method. The study does not require any investigation or intervention to be conducted on patients or animals.
