Neeraja Rani Guruvu, Bapugouda Patil, Deepthi Rani Boddu, Bandaru Narasinga Rao, N Indira Kumari.

Abstract
Background: It was well known that honey has capability to heal wounds. Many studies highlighted the wound healing properties of honey. Honey inhibits growth of the microbes effectively. However, the studies related in this area were scanty.

Aim and Objective: This study aims to determine the antibacterial activity of different honeys against common wound pathogens.

Materials and Methods: Bharat honey obtained from Bharat Unani Pharmacy, Hyderabad, and commercial honey from local market was tested and evaluated against the bacterial strains of Pseudomonas aeruginosa ATCC 27853, Escherichia coli ATCC 35218, and Staphylococcus aureus ATCC 25923 using in vitro agar well diffusion method.

Results: The study results confirmed that the honey was effective in inhibiting the growth of the microbes related to wound.

Conclusion: Bharat honey showed the highest antibacterial activity against both Gram-positive and -negative bacteria when compared to commercial honey.

Key words: Wound Pathogens; Honey; Well Diffusion
