An aqueous extract of Morinda citrifolia was shown to interfere with the serum-induced morphological conversion of Candida albicans from a cellular yeast to a filamentous form in vitro. The conversion of C. albicans from a cellular yeast to a filamentous form in vivo is associated with pathogenicity. No significant effect on growth in serum-free media was seen at the concentrations used to interfere with the morphological change. The same extract also inhibited the germination of Apergillus… CONTINUE READING
