AbstractThe antimicrobial activity of the ethanol extract of Kaempferia parviflora was tested against human pathogens, including bacteria, yeast and dermatophyte fungi, using the agar disc diffusion. The ethanol extract exhibited strong anti-fungal activtiy against dermatophytes with clear zone from 10.7-19.8 mm at concentration of 2 mg/disc. However, ethanol extract showed no activities against all bacteria and yeast tested. The ethanol extract and seven compounds of K. parviflora were further studied using agar dilution method against dermatophytes. It was found that the ethanol extract of K. parviflora exhibited strong anti-fungal activity against Trichophyton rubrum, Trichophyton mentagrophytes and Microsporum gypseum with MIC values of 62.5, 125 and 250 ug/ml, respectively. Only compound 6 (3, 5, 7-trimethoxyflavone)present in this extract showed appreciable anti-fungal activity with MIC values of 250 ug/ml against these three dermatophytes.
