Dr. V Krishnaveni

Abstract


Background: The functional requirements of protective textiles have led to the innovative use of a variety of natural plants with wound healing properties for wound care applications. The Tridax procumbens is one of the incredibly important natural plants available in all areas with hygienic properties. Materials and Methods: The T. procumbens herb leaves were collected and extracted, and it was coated on bamboo fabric. Results and Discussion: The extract was tested under qualitative phytochemical screening and expressed the occurrence of phytochemicals. The antimicrobial property of Tridax ethanolic extract 8% and 16% concentrated treated samples was tested using standard AATCC 147 qualitative and AATCC 100 quantitative tests against both Gram-positive bacterial pathogens, namely Staphylococcus aureus and Klebsiella pneumoniae, and Gram-negative bacterial pathogens, namely Pseudomonas auruginosa and Escherichia coli. Conclusion: The test result shows that the Tridax treated samples have superior antibacterial activity.
