BACKGROUND Many plants of the family Moraceae are used in the treatment of infectious diseases. Ficus polita Vahl., an edible plant belonging to this family is used traditionally in case of dyspepsia, infectious diseases, abdominal pains and diarrhea. The present work was designed to assess the antimicrobial activity of the methanol extract from the roots(More)
BACKGROUND Dorstenia mannii (Moraceae) is a medicinal herb used traditionally for the treatment of many diseases. In the present study, the methanol extract of D. mannii and nine of its isolated compounds, namely dorsmanin A (1), B (2), C (3), D (4), E (6), F (7), G (8) dorsmanin I (9) and 6,8-diprenyleriodictyol (5), were tested for their antimicrobial(More)
BACKGROUND The use of edible plants is an integral part of dietary behavior in the West region of Cameroon. Dorstenia psilurus (Moraceae) is widely used as spice and as medicinal plant for the treatment of several diseases in Cameroon. The aim of this study is to investigate the cytotoxic and apoptotic potential of methanol extract of D. psilurus in human(More)
A series of novel functionalized 1,3-selenazole was synthesized by Hantzsch-type condensation reaction and evaluated for their in vitro cytotoxic activity against two human cancer cell lines. The structures of the synthesized selenosemicarbazones and functionalized 2-hydrazinyl-1,3-selenazole derivatives were assigned based on IR and NMR spectroscopic(More)
Chalcones and their derivatives have been shown to have potent anticancer activity. A series of aldehydes A 1–4 and thiazolic chalcones C 1–20 were synthesized and evaluated for their in vitro cytotoxic activity against three human cancer cell lines. In addition, this work led to the synthesis of 12 new thiazolic chalcones using a base-catalyzed(More)
Bacterial multidrug resistance (MDR) constitutes a major hurdle in the treatment of infectious diseases worldwide. The present study was designed to evaluate the antibacterial activities of synthetic p-toluenesulfonyl-hydrazinothiazoles against multidrug resistant Gram-negative bacteria. The broth microdilution method was used to determine the minimal(More)
