Cranberry (Vaccinium macrocarpon) is a very useful drug in Unani system of medicine and Ayruvedic system of medicine. Research has suggested cranberry may be effective against UTIs (urinary tract infection) because it prevents Escherischia coli, the bacteria that cause most urinary tract infections, from attaching to the walls of the bladder. It only grows in open, sunny, wet areas in the colder regions of the Northern Hemisphere. Cranberry is a small evergreen shrub grown in bogs in damp forests and open ponds. So many studies have been done on pharmacological activities of cranberry fruits.
Key words: Vaccinium macrocarpon, Escherischia coli, urinary tract infections.
