Background: The use of medicinal smokes is common in more than 50 countries and accepted in traditional medicine and among people.
In Iranian culture, according to ancient physicians such as Avicenna and Zakaria al-Razi, the use of smoke such as Spand (Peganum harmala) and female donkey dung (Anbarnasara) is common as a medicinal combination to treat Sinusitis and Vaginitis also wound infection, eyes and anal infections. This study aims to investigate the opinions of ancient physicians about the effect of Anbarnasara smoke on bacteria isolated from the wound, eye, and sinuses infections.
Materials and Methods: Smoke from burning Anbarnasara was collected in 50% methanol. The antibacterial effects of various concentrations (3.2-100 mg/ml) of the collected smoke were investigated by the disk diffusion method on 6 standard bacteria and 8 bacteria isolated from patients.
Results: The largest zone of inhibition was observed in 100 mg/ml with 12 mm in Micrococcus luteus a Gram-positive standard strain and 18 mm in Klebsiella pneumoniae. a Gram-negative standard strain. In the same concentration, among gram-positive bacteria isolated from patients, the highest zone of inhibition with 21 mm was observed in S. epidermidis and among gram-negative bacteria isolated from patients, the largest zone of inhibition with 17 mm was observed in Proteus mirabilis.
Conclusion: Due to the observed antibacterial effects of smoke from burning Anbarnasara in the bacterial strains, which often causes infection in wound, eyes, and sinuses infections, according to the opinions of ancient physicians, this combination can be used to eliminate these infections.
