Essential Oil Composition, Antioxidant, Cytotoxic and Antiviral Activities of Teucrium pseudochamaepitys Growing Spontaneously in Tunisia
The chemical composition, antioxidant, cytotoxic and antiviral activities of the essential oil obtained by hydrodistillation from the aerial parts of Teucrium pseudochamaepitys (Lamiaceae) collectedExpand
In vitro antimicrobial, antioxidant and antiviral activities of the essential oil and various extracts of wild (Daucus virgatus (Poir.) Maire) from Tunisia
Investigation of the antiviral, antioxidant and antimicrobial effects of wild Daucus virgatus (Poir.) Maire from Tunisia found ethylacetate and methanol extracts exhibited significant inhibitory effects against CV-B4 virus, and the cytotoxicity test demonstrated moderate cytotoxic effects of the crude extracts on the HEp-2 cell line.

In‐utero coxsackievirus B4 infection of the mouse thymus
Findings suggest that CV‐B infection of the fetal thymus may play an important role in the genesis of autoimmune diseases. Expand
Cytotoxic and antiviral activities of the essential oils from Tunisian Fern, Osmunda regalis
Abstract This study was undertaken to assess the in vitro cytotoxic and antiviral activities of the essential oil (EO) from Tunisian fern, Osmunda regalis. The essential oil was obtained byExpand
Coxsackievirus B4 vertical transmission in a murine model
This model of CV-B4 vertical transmission in mice, in addition to allowing a better understanding ofCV-B infections in fetuses and newborns, constitutes a useful tool to investigate the pathogenesis of CV -B associated chronic diseases. Expand
Central nervous system infection following vertical transmission of Coxsackievirus B4 in mice.
Investigation of vertical transmission of Coxsackie B viruses in pregnant Swiss albino mice showed that in utero infection did not enhance CNS infection during challenge of the offspring with the same virus. Expand
Immunopathology in the brain of mice following vertical transmission of Coxsackievirus B4.
Coxsackie B viruses (CV-B) are associated with several central nervous system (CNS) disorders. These viruses are predominantly transmitted by fecal-oral route but vertical transmission can alsoExpand
Housekeeping Gene Expression in the Fetal and Neonatal Murine Thymus Following Coxsackievirus B4 Infection
It is demonstrated that Oaz1, with very stable expression levels that outperformed other tested housekeeping genes, could be used as a reference gene in the thymus and thymic epithelial cells during development and following Coxsackievirus B4 infection. Expand
Coxsackievirus B4 infection and interneuronal spread in primary cultured neurons.
The ineffectiveness of neutralizing serum is demonstrated to prevent neurons infection with Coxsackie B viruses which suggests a trans-synaptic transmission of CV-B4 between neurons. Expand
Assessment of Thymic Output Dynamics After in utero Infection of Mice With Coxsackievirus B4
Disruption in thymic export may indeed interfere with T cell maturation, and it is speculated that this may lead to a premature release of T cells and the possibility of circulating autoreactive or proliferation-impaired T cell clones. Expand
