Abstract:
In traditional medicine of Southeast Asian region and other parts of the world Rhinacanthus nasutus (L.) is used in several skin complaints. It was found that aqueous ethanolic extract of Rhinacanthus nasutus (L.) exhibited a potent dose dependent anti-fungal activity against Candida albicans and Trichophyton mentagorphytes along with substantial anti-fungal activity against all the fungal strains tested. An anti-bacterial activity of the plant is also observed against gram-positive bacteria, however, was ineffective against gram-negative bacteria used in this study.
