The present work aimed to evaluate the effectiveness of Plectranthus amboinicus (Lour.) Spreng against MRSA clinical isolates. The in vitro antimicrobial activity of the hydroalcoholic extract (HE), the ethyl acetate (EA) fraction and its subfractions were determined by broth microdilution and bioautography against MRSA clinical isolates. The microdilution(More)
OBJECTIVE From January 1995 to June 1999 our surgical team at ICORP, Fortaleza, Ceará, Brazil, performed coronary artery surgery without cardiopulmonary bypass as a routine procedure. A total of 897 operations were performed during this period, 91.8 % (824) of them without cardiopulmonary bypass. The purpose of the present study is to evaluate the results(More)
OBJECTIVE To assess the results observed during the early postoperative period in patients who had the posterior coronary arteries revascularized without cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB), in regard to the following parameters: age, sex, bypass grafts types, morbidity and mortality. METHODS From January 1995 to June 1998, 673 patients underwent myocardial(More)
We evaluated the antimicrobial activity and some mechanisms used by subinhibitory and inhibitory concentrations of the essential oil, obtained from leaves of Plectranthus amboinicus, against a standard strain of Klebsiella pneumoniae and 5 multiresistant clinical isolates of the bacteria. The minimal inhibitory concentration (MIC) and minimal bactericidal(More)
