ABSTRACT:
Adhatoda vasica belonging to Acanthaceae family, commonly known as Adosa, is found in many regions of India and throughout the world, with a multitude of uses in traditional Ayurveda. Vasica is most well-known for its effectiveness in treating respiratory conditions and are highly demandable in pharmaceutical industries. The compound isolated from ethyl acetate fraction of Adhatoda vasica flowers extract has a significant antibacterial activity against bacteria and fungi. Four bacterial strains like S. typhi, E. coli, E. faecalis and B. cereus and two fungal strains such as C. lunata and C.albicans were tested by using disc diffusion method. The anti bacterial activity of the compound isolated from ethyl acetate fraction is almost comparable with the standard Chloramphenicol and the anti-fungal activity of the compound isolated from ethyl acetate fraction is almost comparable with the standard Fluconazole. These are the drugs from Adhatoda vasica flowers that either destroy or inhibit the growth of bacteria and fungi. It has also the ability to prevent or treat bacterial and fungal infections. Further studies are highly needed for future drug development. The present research aims to compile medicinal values of Adhatoda vasica flowers generated through the research activity using modern scientific approaches and innovative scientific tools.
