Insignificant antidermatophytic activity of Brassica campestris oil

Neetu Jain, Meenakshi Sharma.


ntroduction: The aim of the present study was to investigate the antidermatophytic activity of Brassica campestris oil against selected dermatophytes through a disc diffusion technique. Materials and Methods : Four concentrations of mustard oil, 100%, 75%, 50%, and 25%, were screened against Trichophyton rubrum, Trichophyton simii, Chrysosporium indicum, and Chrysosporium tropicum through the disc diffusion technique. Results : The result showed that 25% and 50% concentrations of oil did not show any zone of inhibition. 75% and 100% concentration showed very poor activity against T. rubrum, T. simii, and C. indicum but in the case of C.tropicum, no zone of inhibition was observed . Conclusion: The mustard oil does not exhibited significant antidermatophytic activity in the disc diffusion method.

Key words: Dermatophytes, dermatophytosis, fungi, griseofulvin, trichophyton
