  author={Ali Zarei Mahmoudabadi and Maryam Nasery},
  journal={Journal of Medicinal Plants Research},
The aim of the present study was to investigate anti fungal activities of the fresh extract of Allium ascalonicum Linn. (Liliaceae) against clinically important yeast, dermatophytes and some saprophytic fungi in vitro. The anti fungal effects of fresh crude juice of shallot were determined against 11 isolates of Candida albicans, three species of dermatophytes (Microsporum gypseum, Trichophyton mentagrophytes and Epidermophyton floccosum) and Syncephalastrum, Aspergillus niger, Penicillium sp… 

Figures and Tables from this paper

Antifungal effects of Allium ascalonicum, Marticaria chamomilla and Stachys lavandulifolia extracts on Candida albicans
The results indicate that all three extracts are effective, but Allium ascalonicum possesses the highest antifungal activity on Candida albicans.
Antimicrobial activity of Allium sativum ethanolic extract against food associated bacteria and fungi
The garlic extract was not effective against P. oxalicum and the value of MBC and MFC equaled the MIC, it may be suggested that these extracts may be used as natural antimicrobial additives to reclaim the shelf-life of foods.
Antifungal and anti-biofilm effects of shallot (Allium ascalonicum) aqueous extract on Candida albicans
Using a simple and inexpensive extraction procedure, this study revealed the antifungal property of A. ascalonicum aqueous extract, which could be useful in exploring novel anti-fungal compound.
Antifungal Effect of Methanolic Extracts of Leaves of Garcinia Gummi-Gutta.L.
Findings from this study revealed that plant extracts can be used as natural fungicides to control pathogenic fungi which causes diseases in plants, thus reducing the dependence on the synthetic fungicides.
Evaluation of Antimicrobial Activity of Ethanolic Extracts of Some Indian Spices against Food-related Microorganisms
Clove and ginger ethanolic extracts showed the maximum antifungal activity against all the six tested molds such as Aspergillus luchUensis, A. luchuensis, Penicillium oxalicum, Rhizopus stolonifer, Mucor sp.
The antifungal activity of Allium schoenoprasum L. leaves.
The antifungal activity of Allium schoenoprasum (chives) leaf extract was tested in vitro against the following phytopathogenic fungi: Aspergillus niger, Botrytis cinerea, B. paeoniae, Fusarium
Antifungal plant extracts
The antifungal effects of the studied plant extracts recommend them as candidates for the in vivo biological control.
Anti-tyrosinase and anti-melanogenic potential of shallots (Allium ascalonicum) from various cultivation sites in Thailand
Results indicated that AA 20-4-40 has the potential to be used as a skin-lightening agent in cosmeceuticals.


Heat stable antimicrobial activity of Allium ascalonicum against bacteria and fungi.
The antimicrobial component of the shallot extract was stable at 121 degrees C and the fungus were more sensitive toshallot extract than bacteria, indicating that the antimicrobial principle of shallot was different than the antimacterial compounds of onion and garlic.
In vitro anti‐Helicobacter pylori potential of methanol extract of Allium ascalonicum Linn. (Liliaceae) leaf: susceptibility and effect on urease activity
The result of this work suggests that Allium ascalonicum has some therapeutic potential against Helicobacter pylori infection, which could be explored for patients with gastroduodenal disorders.

In view of the strong antibiotic properties and the complete absence of development of resistance further investigation upon the principles of the antimicrobial activity of juices from Allium species merits consideration.
Antibacterial and antifungal survey in plants used in indigenous herbal-medicine of south east regions of Iran
Plants with high antifungal activity included Alpinia officinarum, Chrozophora verbasafalia, Cinnamomum zeylanicum, Dianthus coryophyllus, Helleborus nigra, Heracleum persicum, Myrtus communis, Terminalia chebula and Trachysermum copticum which were effective mostly against Candida albicans and C. utilis.
Chemical composition of shallot (Allium ascalonicum Hort.).
