Introduction:
 
The first antibiotic, penicillin, was discovered in 1928 by Sir Alexander Fleming. For the time, it is clinically used in 1941. Since then, many antimicrobials have been discovered and used for various indications. Research is focused for searching organisms that produce new antibiotics, developing semi synthetic derivatives of older antibiotics with wide differing spectrum of activity, development of synthetic antimicrobials for the last 40 years1. Unfortunately the development of resistance makes these antimicrobials useless. Drug resistance is unresponsiveness of a micro-organism to an antimicrobial agent. Improper use of antimicrobials is the main cause of this emergence of resistance. Even the research both at institutions and pharmaceutical industries fail to discover newer antimicrobials2.
