Abstract

Bacterial infections are a major cause of chronic infections and mortality. Antibiotics have been the preferred treatment method for bacterial infections because of their cost-effectiveness and powerful outcomes. Nanoparticles (NPs) are increasingly used to target bacteria as an alternative to antibiotics. NPS is therefore regarded as next-generation antibiotics. Copper oxide (CuO) nanoparticles were investigated with potential antimicrobial applications against diabetic foot ulcer-causing microbes. All the tested samples including Copper acetate, Seaweed extract and CuONPs (B/C) showed different degrees of activities against diabetic foot ulcer-causing pathogens. Biologically synthesized CuONPs showed excellent antimicrobial activity against foot  ulcer-causing microbes strains like Staphylococcus aureus, Klebsiella pneumonia, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Escherichia coli and Proteus vulgaris.

Keywords: Dictyota dichotoma, antimicrobial, Staphylococcus aureus, Klebsiella pneumonia, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Escherichia coli, Proteus vulgaris
