The anti-arthritic, anti-inflammatory, antioxidant activity and relationships with total phenolics and total flavonoids of nine South African plants used traditionally to treat arthritis
Results from this study support the traditional use of the selected medicinal plants in the management of arthritis and other inflammatory conditions and support the free radical scavenging capacity of the extracts may be related to an immune boosting potential.
The anti-inflammatory and antioxidant activity of 25 plant species used traditionally to treat pain in southern African
Some plant species used traditionally to treat pain have reasonable anti-inflammatory activity and flavonoids are probably not involved in this process.
Cytotoxic and antimicrobial activity of selected Cameroonian edible plants
Findings suggest that Cameroonian spices herein studied could be potentially useful for the development of therapeutic agents against bacterial infections as well as for prostate and leukemia cancer.
In Vitro antifungal activity of extract and plumbagin from the stem bark of Diospyros crassiflora Hiern (Ebenaceae)
It is suggested that extracts from the stem bark of Diospyros crassiflora could be used traditionally in the treatment of fungal infections and plumbagin could be considered as a promising antifungal agent.
Antimicrobial activities of the methanol extract and compounds from Artocarpus communis (Moraceae)
The overall results of this study provided supportive data for the use of A. communis as well as some of its constituents for the treatment of infections associated with the studied microorganisms.
In Vitro antibacterial and antibiotic-potentiation activities of four edible plants against multidrug-resistant gram-negative species
The overall results provide information for the possible use of the studied edible plants extracts in the control of bacterial infections including Multi-drug resistant (MDR) phenotypes expressing active efflux pumps.
Antimicrobial action mechanism of flavonoids from Dorstenia species.
Taking into account the in vivo safety and their significant antimicrobial potency, these flavonoids are promising leads for further drug development.
