The role of the newly developed formulations of povidone-iodine preparations, its antimicrobial activity, the possibility of impairing the wound healing process, the role of povidone-iodine in the problem of growing resistance against antibiotics & antiseptics. Iodine and its antibacterial properties have been used for the prevention or management of wound infections for over 150 years. However, the use of solutions (tincture) of iodine has been replaced by the widespread use of povidone-iodine, a water-soluble compound, which is a combination of molecular iodine and polyvinylpyrrolidone. The resultant broad spectrum of antimicrobial activity is well documented and its efficacy, particularly in relation to resistant micro-organisms. The antibacterial activity of Tridax procumbens performed by using agar well diffusion method showed a result showcasing an effective limit when as opposed pseudomonas vulgaris for ethanol being used as solvent for extract.
