Typhoid fever (TF) is an acute systemic infection caused by Salmonella Typhi, Salmonella Para Typhi A and Salmonella Para Typhi B. It is transmitted by the fecal oral route mainly via contaminated food and water. The developing countries have high rate of morbidity and mortality due to Typhoid fever, epidemics take place in developed world also. There are increased incidences of multi drug resistant in S. typhi strains that has further complicated its management and only a few antibiotics are now effective in treatment of typhoid. We report that the aqueous extracts of fruit peel Citrus sinensis (L.) confer anti typhoid activity against Salmonella Typhi, Salmonella Para Typhi A and Salmonella Para Typhi B respectively on comparison with ciprofloxacin.
Key words: Typhoid fever, Salmonella Typhi, Salmonella Para Typhi A , Salmonella Para Typhi B, anti typhoid activity, Citrus sinensis.

Influence of some fungi associated with fodder on growth and penitrem production by Penicillium aurantiogriseum was investigated. Penicillium griseofulvum and Trichoderma viride caused maximum inhibition of penitrem production by p. aurantiogriseum, while Alternaria alternate, Curvularia lunata, Drechslera spicifer and Fusarium oxysporum failed to exert any influence on penitrem production by P. aurantiogriseum.
Key words: Interaction mycotoxigenic fungi, penitrem, Penicillium aurantiogriseum.
