Written by Ivan PAULIUC, Dorica BOTAU

Ethanol and water extracts from aerial parts of Astragalus onobrychis were tested against 12 species of Candida, using the broth microdilution method, in order to determine the MIC values.The study showed a more potent activity on the ethanol extract with a MIC value of 2,57 mg/mL and a weaker activity on the water extract of 3,32 mg/mL on most of the Candida species studied.The results indicate that Astragalus onobrychis is a promising andidate for developing antifungal products.
