Description partielle
The present investigation describes the "Antimicrobial screening and isolation of bioactive principles from some arid zone plants of Rajasthan" In recent years, there has been renewed interest in screening higher plants for novel biologically active products particularly to combat such ailments, which have defied synthetics and antibiotics. During the past three decades, several pharmaceuticals with biological activities have been identified from higher plants. Mainstream medicine is increasingly receptive to the use of antimicrobial and other drugs derived from plants, as traditional antibiotics become ineffective and as new diseases remain intractable to this type of drug. Another driving factor for the renewed interest in plant antimicrobials in the past 20 years has been the rapid rate of plant species extinction. Plants have been an integral part of traditional medicine across the continents since time immemorial and the major part of traditional therapy involves the use of plant extracts or their active principles. For this reason the search for new antimicrobial drugs among plants became an important alternative thus called complementary or alternative medicines (CAM). The systematic investigation of these drugs used in indigenous medicine on modern scientific lines, gained considerable momentum. Hence attempt has been made to explore the potential of indigenous plants of arid zone of Rajasthan for antimicrobial principles which could be processed further for active drug.
