- Kurzbeschreibung<p>The development of resistance to anti-typhoid drugs had made it very difficult and expensive to treat typhoid fever. Therefore, it becomes imperative to look for non-conventional modalities. Recently medical profession has rediscovered the distinctive and synergistic antibacterial activity in honey.

We hypothesized that honey would be more effective in gastrointestinal illnesses because unlike antibiotics, it only target pathogenic bacteria without disturbing the growth of normal flora. Besides, it also contains prebiotics and probiotics and thus has additional therapeutic advantage over conventional treatment. Therefore, we have evaluated one hundred samples of Pakistani unifloral honeys from nineteen common bee flora for both synergistic and partial antibacterial activity against multi-drug resistant S. typhi.
