Abstract

Aqueous and Acetone extracts of epidermal glands of the ferns, Christilla parasitica and Cyclosorus interuptus were tested both individually and in combinations against the growth of Salmonella typhi. Epidermal gland extracts of Christilla parasitica and Cyclosorus interuptus gave successful results in acetone base and poor results in aqueous base. The results were compared with that of the reference standard anti-biotic (Ciprofloxacin). It was found that extracts of Christilla parasitica gave 21 mm and Cyclosorus interuptus gave 22 mm in acetone extracts. Both gave resistant results in aqueous extracts. When Christilla parasitica and Cyclosorus interuptus were mixed, it gave only 18 mm zone.
