Antifungal Potential of Plant Species From Brazilian Caatinga Against Dermatophytes

Abstract: Trichophyton rubrum and Trichophyton mentagrophytes complex, or Trichophyton spp. are the main etiologic agents of dermatophytosis, whose treatment is limited by the high cost of antifungal treatments, their various side effects, and the emergence of resistance amongst these species. This study evaluated the in vitro antidermatophytic activity of 23 crude extracts from nine plant species of semiarid vegetation (caatinga) found in Brazil. The extracts were tested at concentrations ranging from 1.95 to 1,000.0 m… Show more

“…(Victoria et al, 2012 ). The antifungal activity of several E. uniflora leaf fraction extracts were also observed against Trichophyton rubrum and T. mentagrophytes (Biasi-Garbin et al, 2016 ) and Candida species (Ferreira et al, 2013 ). Therefore, we used the ethyl acetate (EAF) fraction of this natural product by obtaining a fraction enriched in polyphenols.…”

“…The contents of gallic acid and myricitrin were calculated based with the calibration curves of the respective standards, and the results found were 0.16 g% ± 0.0017 (1.42) and 0.43 g% ± 0.0006 (0.01), respectively. Much research has shown the anti- Candida activity potential of plant-derived compounds such as flavonoids and essential oils [ 28 , 29 , 30 ].…”
