Author(s): K Kasiram, P.R Sakharkar, A.T Patil

The in vitro antifungal activity of Calendula officinalis flower extracts have been investigated against Aspergillus niger, Rhizopus japonicum, Candida albicans, Candida tropicallis and Rhodotorula glutinis. The extracts of Calendula officinalis showed high degree of activity against all test fungi. The inhibitory effects of extracts are very close and identical in magnitude and are comparable with that of standard abtibiotics used.
