Abstract:

Camel (Camelus dromedarius) urine is one of the traditional antimicrobial agents which are used from the ancient time in different communities for the treatment of so many diseases. It is a scientific miracle of the sunna that the prophet Mohammed "Peace be upon him' mentioned the camel's urine as a medicine in ancient times when there was no electric, microscopic and technology, in the Hadith which mentioned in Sahih Bukhari and also Sahih Muslim. Narrated Anas: Some people from the tribe of 'Ukl (Uraniyyîn) came to the Prophet and embraced Islam. The climate of Medina did not suit them, so the Prophet ordered them to go to the (herd of milch) camels of charity and to drink, its milk and urine (as a medicine). They did so, and after they had recovered from their ailment (became healthy). To assess the efficiency of camel's urine as antimicrobial agent, Minimal inhibitory concentration (MIC) and Minimal bactericidal concentration (MBC) of camels' urine against bacteria causes wound infection. Sixty samples of camel urine were tested for their antimicrobial activity using Mueller Hinton Agar (pour plate method) and tube dilution method in Brain Heart Infusion broth in Bacterial Isolates from Wound Infections of patients admitted in Kassala teaching hospital. Pathogenic Bacteria which include, Staphylococcus aureus, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Escherichia coli, Proteus mirabilis and Klebsiella pneumonia were used in the research.  Undiluted urine of the camel (100%) concentrated was found to be bactericidal for all the isolated tested, half concentrated of the urine(50%) was bacteriostatic for all the isolated tested. and 25% concentrated camel urine was found to be resistant for all the isolated tested. No resistant microorganism was found from the isolates of infected wounds for camel urine in high concentration (100%). Undiluted and filtered female camel urine of age 5years (100%) and half diluted (50%) concentrated were found to be susceptible 100% for all the isolates of wounds infection.
