ABSTRACT

This study was carried out with an objective to investigate the antifungal potentials of aqueous and alcoholic extract of bilwadi agad .The aim of the study is to assess the antifungal activity and to determine the zone of inhibition of extracts on some fungal strains. In the present study, the antifungal activity of aqueous and alcoholic extracts of of bilwadi agad was evaluated against medically important fungal strains. The antifungal activity was determined in the extracts using well diffusion method. The antifungal activities of aqueous and alcoholic extracts (5, 10, 15 % concentration) of bilwadi agad were tested against Candida albicans, Microsporum canis, Microsporum fulvum, Trichophyton rubrum. Zone of inhibition of extracts were compared with Ketoconazole .The results showed that the remarkable inhibition of the fungal growth was shown against the tested organisms. We conclude from this that these extracts exhibit amazing fungicidal properties that support their traditional use as antiseptics Hence, bilwadi agad can be used as natural products to fight with fungal infections.
