The aim of the present research was to check the effect of iron chelators, namely Gallic acid and Salicylhydroxamate on the growth of Candida albican in vitro. C. albican is the opportunistic paltogen present as the normal flora inside human body. In vivo the growth of C. albican is disturbed by the use of antibiotics and immuno suppressers.
