Abstract

Interaction between the root, leaf and stem-bark extracts of Morinda lucida were investigated for their antifungal activities against Candida albicans by using pair combinations in an in vitro demical additive assay based on disk diffusion. Additive interactions were observed in each pair of the combinations. Neither synergistic nor antagonistic interactions were recorded. Phytochemical analysis suggested the presence of similar phytochemicals in all the extracts.
