Abstract : Antibiotics were ceaselessly used to treat bacterial infections and their constant use has developed high degree of resistance in bacteria. Methicillin-resistant staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) is one among such potent bacteria that has been a great concern in almost all areas of medicine. They almost halted the golden era of antibiotics. MRSA has been the reason for most of community acquired infections and hospital acquired infections. The presence of a mutant in the bacteria makes it resistant against most of the antibiotics. Because of the lack of treatment and expanded death rate there is a requirement for a potent therapy to convey an end to this bacterial infection.
