Abstract

The emergence of drug resistant bacteria has now become a major public health problem worldwide (Cohen, 2000; Kumarasamy et al., 2010; Sengupta et al., 2013). WHO report (2017) on global surveillance of antimicrobial resistance revealed a widespread development of resistance in both gram positive and gram negative bacteria which had threatened millions of people worldwide. A rapid increase in number of drug-resistant bacteria and incidence nosocomial infections pose a challenge to conventional therapies using existing antibiotics, leading to the need in finding alternative microbicides to control these infections (Lakshmaiah et al., 2015). Thus, a discovery of new and effective treatments that can replace current available antibiotics has become a critical area of research globally.
