Anti-Helicobacter pylori activities were determined by agar dilution, confocal laser scanning microscopy, and cell proliferation assays following treatment with various grape extracts. Muscadine grape skin possessed the strongest activity, followed by grape synergy (skin and seed) and seed, suggesting that higher phenolic levels do not necessarily determine(More)
The objective of this study was to determine the prevalence of antibiotic-resistant bacteria in various herbal products. Twenty-nine herbal supplements (18 traditional and 11 organic products) were purchased from stores and analyzed microbiologically.

Hoechst dyes are well known DNA binders that non-selectively inhibit the function of mammalian topoisomerase I and II. Herein, we show that Hoechst 33258 based bisbenzimidazoles (DPA 151-154), containing a terminal alkyne, are effective and selective inhibitors of E. coli. topoisomerase I. These bisbenzimidazoles displayed topoisomerase I inhibition much(More)
