  • Abstract

    The present study deals with the antifungal activity of the hexane, ethyl acetate and methanol extracts of the plant Indigofera aspalathoides using agar diffusion method against human pathogens, such as Candida albicans; Candida parapsilosis; Candida tropicallis. In the present investigation, all the extracts were found to be effective against three human fungal species sensitive to all the plant extracts. The study suggests that the extract of the plant parts possesses potential broad spectrum antimicrobial activity. The antimicrobial activity of methanol extracts was found to be higher than that of other extracts.
