BACKGROUND The present study was designed to investigate the antibacterial activities of the methanol extracts of four Cameroonian edible plants, locally used to treat microbial infections, and their synergistic effects with antibiotics against a panel of twenty nine Gram-negative bacteria including Multi-drug resistant (MDR) phenotypes expressing active(More)
Stimulation of the immune system has been found to enhance, impair, or have no effect on various memory tasks. In the present study, male Wistar rats received saline, lipopolysaccharide (LPS, 250μg/kg in saline, 7 consecutive days), intranigral 6-hydroxydopamine (6-OHDA, 2μg/μl saline; 5μl/site) and intranigral 6-OHDA plus 7 consecutive days of LPS(More)
BACKGROUND Many edible plants are used in Cameroon since ancient time to control microbial infections. This study was designed at evaluating the antibacterial activities of the methanol extracts of ten Cameroonian vegetables against a panel of twenty nine Gram negative bacteria including multi-drug resistant (MDR) strains. METHODS The broth microdilution(More)
In this study the glandular hair morphology, chemical composition and antimicrobial activity of the essential oils from three Ocimum species have been investigated (Ocimum basilicum L. var. Genovese, O. gratissimum and O. tenuiflorum). The indumentum shows little variation among the investigated species with both glandular and non-glandular hairs presents.(More)
Male Wistar rats were subjected to chronic 6-hydroxy-l-nicotine treatment (6HLN, 0.3 mg/kg, i.p., seven consecutive days) and their memory performance was studied by means of Y-maze and radial arm-maze tasks. 6HLN significantly increased spontaneous alternations in Y-maze task and working memory in radial arm-maze task, suggesting effects on short-term(More)
