ABSTRACT

Acquired Immuno Deficiency Syndrome (AIDS) is one of the major
global health concerns. Lack of immunity and opportunistic infections
are the major threat to these patients. Ayurveda has been of immense
help in managing these type of patients. The present study was
conducted to assess the anti bacterial and anti fungal effectiveness of
Tinospora cordifolia and to compare its effect with chlorhexidene.
Saliva and swab specimens were collected from 12 people living with
HIV infection. Study subjects were divided into two groups and one
group was given chlorhexidene and other group Tinospora cordifolia
leaves. Saliva and swab samples were taken before and after, and sent
for microbial analysis. Statistical analysis of the results revealed that there is no statistical
significance between the two groups. ( p > 0.05). From the present study, we can conclude
that both Tinospora cordifolia and chlorhexidene have antibacterial and antifungal
effectiveness and since Tinospora cordifolia is locally available, it can be used as an adjuvant
to oral hygiene practice, especially in case of AIDS patients who are more prone to
opportunistic infections.

Keywords: Tinospora cordifolia, Chlorhexidene, microbial counts, AIDS.
