In recent research, an investigation has been led to searching for an antibiogram pattern from an alternate natural source, endophytic fungus. The study has revealed the presence of good antibacterial activity for the crude extracts of Penicillium sp. so. This means that this organism could be a good source for bioactive compounds, and the isolated compounds can be further used as antibacterial agents.
A recent study, led at Korea Institute for Skin and Clinical Sciences in Seoul, has recently studied the protective effects of Centella Asiatica against ultraviolet B damages on skin.
