Abstract: Crude extracts and fractions of five species of Polygala - P. campestris, P. cyparissias, P. paniculata, P. pulchella and P. sabulosa - were investigated for their in vitro antifungal activity against opportunistic Candida species, Cryptococcus gattii and Sporothrix schenckii with bioautographic and microdilution assays. In the bioautographic assays, the major extracts were active against the fungi tested. In the minimal concentration inhibitory (MIC) assay, the hexane extract of P. paniculata and EtOAc fracti… Show more

“…activity through tests of broth microdilution in standard strains isolated from humans and felines (Verástegui et al, 1996;Johann et al, 2007;Luqman et al, 2007;Cleff et al, 2008;Fatima et al, 2009;Johann et al, 2011;Joshi et al, 2011;Stopiglia et al, 2011). This method is based on the proportion of microbial growth in liquid medium challenged with the concentration of the measured substance using a 96-well microplate (CLSI, 2002;Pinto et al, 2003).…”

“…From the plants used in traditional medicine in Brazil, Johann et al (2011) exhibited that ethanolic and ethyl acetate extracts of Rubus urticaefolius (Rosaceae) inhibited the fungal growth at the concentration of 125 μg mL -1 , while Rumex acetosa (Polygonaceae) demonstrated activity at 1000 μg mL -1 . The same activity was observed in the essential oil of Lobelia pyramidalis (Campanulaceae), which inhibited the fungal growth at MIC of 6.25 mg mL -1 (Joshi et al, 2011).…”
