Abstract

The present study describes the antidermatophyte and antioxidant activity of methanolic extract of an edible plant Remisatia vivipara (Roxb.) Schoot (Araceae). Human dermatophytes namely Trichophytum rubrum and Chrysosporium indicum were tested for their sensitivity to methanolic extract by Agar well diffusion method. Different concentrations of methanolic extract was subjected to antioxidant activity by DPPH free radical scavenging and Fe+3 reducing power assays. A marked dose dependent antioxidant activity of extract was observed. Among fungi, Trichophytum rubrum was found to be more susceptible to solvent extract than Chrysosporium indicum. The results of the study indicate the antioxidant and antifungal potential of extract. Further studies on isolation of constituents and biological activities of isolated compounds in vivo are to be carried out.
