Abstract

Cow urine is an effective killing agent against a broad spectrum of gram-negative and gram- positive bacteria. The present investigation proved the antimicrobial action of cow urine against the microbes of gram positive bacteria, Bacillus cereus, Staphylococcus aureus and gram negative bacteria, Salmonella typhimurium, Aeromonas hydrophila, Enterobacter aerogenes, Micrococcus luteus. The activities of photoactivated urine were comparable with that of a standard tetracycline. It was observed that photoactivated cow urine was showing similar antimicrobial activity as tetracycline against all pathogenic bacteria. Highest antimicrobial activity against gram positive Staphylococcus aureus (zone of inhibition 18mm) and gram negative bacteria Aeromonas hydrophila (zone of inhibition 22mm) was observed in photoactivated urine. Cow urine kills the number of drug resistant bacteria and viruses. Medical uses of cow urine was reported in literature and indicated to be beneficial even for dreaded diseases like cancer, AIDS and diabetes. Recently the cow urine has been granted U.S. Patents (No. 6896907), for its medicinal properties, US Patent for India Patent (No. 6410059), Cow urine antimicrobial effect of antibiotic and Patent (No.7235262), Cow urine use of bioactive fraction as a bio-enhancer of anti-infective.
