Ashella.S [2] | Albin T. Fleming [6]


Abstract: The biologically active components of Centella asiatica improve human health through the herbal derived medicine as an alternative source. Asiatic acid is the pentacyclic triterpenes, in the form of genins, isolated from the Centella asiatica. In the present study, the asiatic acid is employed for testing its efficacy against the two gram-positive and gram-negative bacteria and against fungi. The result showed that the asiatic acid has potential activity against both the bacterial and fungal strains. Hence, this active compound is therapeutically active against microbes and, can be taken for further pre-clinical investigations.
