Abstract:

In the present study, we evaluated the antimicrobial activity of Sesamum indicum L. seeds extract against Dermatophytosis pathogens, including those responsible for human infection. Sensitivity testing against some pathogenic fungi were studied with sesame seed extract. Trichophyton mentagrophytes and Trichophyton rubrum were the microorganisms used and they were identified, confirmed and obtained from the Biology laboratory of the hospital of waist, Iraq. The results showed that the inhibitory activity of the extracts against the tested fungi depended on the type of fungi, the extract type (alcohol or acetone), and its concentration. As a result of the strong tendency that has emerged recently to use plants and their active ingredients in the medicine. 
The acetone extract has a high inhibitory activity, followed by the alcohol extract. This article focuses on natural products used as antifungal properties, their effects on the minimum inhibitory concentration value, as well as their environmental value. The study suggested that sesame seeds are potential sources of functional food to prevent chronic diseases.
