ABSTRACT
Aegle marmelos Linn. (Rutaceae) is reported to possess a number of medicinal properties including antidiarrhoeal, antimicrobial, antifungal and activities. The antiaflatoxigenic effects of ethanolic extract of the leaves of Aegle marmelos were studied on common aflatoxigenic fungal species. Aegle marmelos exhibited antifungal and antiaflatoxigenic activity at a concentration range of 0.5 to 2 mg/ml. The shake flask method was used to evaluate the antifungal and antiaflatoxigenic activity. The extract showed varied levels of antifungal and antiaflatoxigenic activity against the test fungi. Preliminary phytochemical tests of ethanolic extracts demonstrated the presence of major phytochemicals like phenols, tannins, flavonoids and alkaloids as major constituents.
