Abstract

The antimicrobial and antioxidant activities of the hydroethanolic extract from Caryocar brasiliense leaves were evaluated. The extract showed leishmanicidal effect against Leishmania amazonensis promastigote forms and bactericidal activity against some pathogenic bacteria. The extract also showed relevant antioxidant activity, similar to that of vitamin C and rutin.
