The aim of the present study was to assess the anticandidal effects of ethanolic and aqueous extracts of Melilotus officinalis (sweet clover) and Aristolochia clematitis (birthwort) against selected isolates of 9 Candida species. The aerial parts of the plants were collected in Romania. Anticandidal activities of aqueous and ethanolic extracts were tested by microtiter broth dilution method against isolates of C. inconspicua, C. pulcherrima, C. guilliermondii, C. albicans, C. krusei, C. lusitaniae, C. glabrata, C. parapsilosis, C. methapsilosis and C. ortopsilosis. Aqueous and ethanolic extracts of sweet clover showed broad spectrum anticandidal activity and inhibited the growth of most tested yeast strains. From the species tested, the isolates of C. guilliermondii and C. parapsilosis were the most sensitive. Extracts of birthwort showed no growth reduction effect on some Candida species: growth of C. krusei, C. lusitaniae and C. glabrata was even enhanced by these extracts, and aqueous extract had also a growth supporting effect on C. albicans.
