ABSTRACT:
Gynecological disorders are very frequent and common among Indian women due to various un-hygienic issues. As per Ayurvedic literature there are several herbs used to cure women disorders, though there proper documentation and validation need to be established. One of the major fungus causing gynecological infection is Candida species. It has increasingly deserved a special attention among the medical community. In spite of the presence of Candida species as a human commensal, alarming rates of local and systemic infections have been observed, varying from moderate to severe impact. The present work aims to investigate the anti-candida activity of hydroalcoholic extract of Achyranthes aspera Linn. (Roots) ASR, Clitoria ternatea Linn. (Roots) CTR, Ipomea cairica Linn. (Leaves) ICL and Plumeria pudica Jacq. (Leaves) PPL. The results obtained were compared with standard anti-fungal drugs amphotericin B. Further studies need to be establish to deepen knowledge on this area, namely, focused on clinical trials to provide safer and more effective anti-fungal than the current ones.
