Antimicrobial activity of the crude extract, fractions and compounds from stem bark of Ficus ovata (Moraceae).
The overall results provided evidence that the studied plant extract, as well as some of the isolated compounds might be potential sources of new antimicrobial drug. Expand
Cytotoxicity of seven naturally occurring phenolic compounds towards multi-factorial drug-resistant cancer cells.
The studied phenolics and mostly isoflavonoid 1 and lignan 4 are potential cytotoxic natural products that deserve more investigations to develop novel antineoplastic drugs against multifactorial drug-resistant cancers. Expand
Evaluation of Antiaris africana methanol extract and compounds for antioxidant and antitumor activities
A methanol extract from the stem bark of Antiaris africana Engler (Moraceae), as well as compounds isolated and identified as betulinic acid (1), 3β-acetoxy-1β,11α-dihydroxy-olean-12-ene (2), ursolicExpand
Antibacterial activities of the extracts, fractions and compounds from Dioscorea bulbifera
Evidence is provided that the crude extract D. bulbifera as well as some of the compounds and mostly compounds 3 could be considered as potential antimicrobial drugs to fight against MDR bacteria. Expand
Antimicrobial activity of the crude extracts and five flavonoids from the twigs of Dorstenia barteri (Moraceae).
The overall results provide promising baseline information for the potential use of the crude extracts from DBT as well as some of the isolated compounds in the treatment of bacterial and fungal infections. Expand
Antitumor, antioxidant and antimicrobial activities of Bersama engleriana (Melianthaceae).
The overall results of this study indicates that the extracts from the roots, stem bark, leaves and wood have interesting antioxidant properties and represent a potential source of medicine for the treatment of infectious diseases and cancer. Expand
Evaluation of flavonoids from Dorstenia barteri for their antimycobacterial, antigonorrheal and anti-reverse transcriptase activities.
Evidence is provided that the crude extract as well as some flavonoids from D. barteri could be potential sources of new antimicrobial drug against tuberculosis, gonorrhea and probably the acquired immunodeficiency syndrome. Expand
Cytotoxicity of four Aframomum species (A. arundinaceum, A. alboviolaceum, A. kayserianum and A. polyanthum) towards multi-factorial drug resistant cancer cell lines
Evidence of the cytotoxicity selected Aframomum species as well as a baseline information for the potential use of Aframoum arundinaceum in the fight against drug sensitive and otherwise drug-resistant cancers are provided. Expand
Cytotoxicity and modes of action of 4'-hydroxy-2',6'-dimethoxychalcone and other flavonoids toward drug-sensitive and multidrug-resistant cancer cell lines.
Chalcone 1 was the best tested cytotoxic molecule and further studies will be performed in order to envisage its possible use in the fight against multifactorial resistant cancer cells. Expand
Antimicrobial activity of the methanolic extract and compounds from Morus mesozygia stem bark.
The obtained results highlighted the interesting antimicrobial potency of M. mesozygia as well as that of the studied compounds, and provided scientific basis for the traditional use of this species. Expand
