Abstract

The aim of present in vitro study was to investigate antimicrobial efficacy of hydrochloric extract of Cymbopogon citrates and 2% chlorhexidine gluconate solution against Candida albicans and Enterococcus faecalis. The results suggest that there was a significant difference in the antimicrobial activity between C. citrates and chlorhexidine gluconate against C. albicans and E. faecalis. C citratus had a significant antimicrobial efficacy against C. albicans than E. faecalis whereas, chlorhexidine gluconate was more effective against E. faecalis than C. albicans.
