Abstract

The present work was performed to evaluate the inhibitory activity of Glycyrrhiza sp. against various pathogens. It is one of the most seasoned home grown plants popular for its huge assortment of useful characters. The plant was extracted with ethanol and the crude extract was tested for anti mycotic property against Candida albicans, Aspergillus sp, Mucor sp. and Penicilium marneffei at various concentrations. Positive controls utilized were amphotericin B (100 units/plate). The zone of inhibition was estimated and the results proved that the ethanol extract of the plant had potential inhibitory activity against all the pathogens.

Keywords:
