Minimum inhibitory concentration to inhibit the growth of P.acne of ethanolic extract of Curcuma spp. And Adina cordifolia were found to be 125 μg/ml and aqueous extract of Curcuma spp and Adina cordifolia. were found to inhibit the growth of P. acne at concentration 250 μg/ml. 140 μg of heat killed P. acnes injected in the ears of rats by subcutaneous route. Ear thickness was measured as an index of inflammatory strength using vernier caliper upto 35 days but there was no significant change after 10th day.
