New Constituents from the Rhizomes of Egyptian Iris germanica L.
Chemical investigation of the methanolic extract of the rhizomes of Iris germanica L. (Iridaceae) afforded two new compounds; irigenin S (7) and iriside A (12), together with ten known compounds:Expand
Evaluation of the In Vitro Antiplasmodial, Antileishmanial, and Antitrypanosomal Activity of Medicinal Plants Used in Saudi and Yemeni Traditional Medicine
The antiplasmodial, antileishmanial, and antitrypanosomal activity of twenty-five medicinal plants distributed in Saudi Arabia and Yemen was evaluated and partly support the traditional use of some of the selected medicinal plants and warrant further investigations into the putative active constituents.

Attenuation of CCl4-Induced Oxidative Stress and Hepatonephrotoxicity by Saudi Sidr Honey in Rats
Honey protected incidence of both liver and kidney lesions and SSH showed a strong antioxidant activity in DPPH and β-carotene-linoleic acid assays, and SSH was found to contain phenolic compounds. Expand
Assessment of the in Vitro Antiprotozoal and Cytotoxic Potential of 20 Selected Medicinal Plants from the Island of Soqotra
Evaluated in vitro antiprotozoal activity of twenty endemic medicinal plants collected from the island of Soqotra in the Indian Ocean showed non-specific inhibition of the parasites related to high cytotoxicity. Expand
Pharmacological Importance of Simple Phenolic Compounds on Inflammation, Cell Proliferation and Apoptosis with a Special Reference to β-D-Salicin and Hydroxybenzoic Acid
This review aims to collect all the available information related to β-D-salicin and other SP compounds in order to promote a new perspective of this interesting class of compounds and encourage further research into their pharmacological and clinical properties. Expand
Isolation and validated HPTLC analysis of four cytotoxic compounds, including a new sesquiterpene from aerial parts of Plectranthus cylindraceus
The data warrant its further phytochemical and biological characterisation towards developing promising anti-cancer drugs as well as the plant’s cytotoxic property. Expand
Antioxidant, Anti-Glycation and Anti-Inflammatory Activities of Phenolic Constituents from Cordia sinensis
Nine compounds have been isolated from the ethyl acetate soluble fraction of C. sinensis and some compounds showed significant anti-glycation inhibitory activity and the implications of these results for the chemotaxonomic studies of the genus Cordia have also been discussed. Expand
In vitro antiplasmodial, antileishmanial and antitrypanosomal activities of selected medicinal plants used in the traditional Arabian Peninsular region
The results endorse that medicinal plants can be promising sources of natural products with antiprotozoal activity potential and support to some extent the traditional uses of some plants for the treatment of parasitic protozoal diseases. Expand
Phytochemical, Antimicrobial and Antiprotozoal Evaluation of Garcinia Mangostana Pericarp and α-Mangostin, Its Major Xanthone Derivative
This in vitro study endorses that the antiprotozoal and antimicrobial potential of prenylated xanthones is non-conclusive in view of the low level of selectivity. Expand
In Vitro Antiprotozoal Activity of Abietane Diterpenoids Isolated from Plectranthus barbatus Andr.
Five abietane-type diterpenes isolated from the genus Plectranthus tested in vitro for their antiprotozoal activity against erythrocytic schizonts of Plasmodium falciparum, intracellular amastigotes of Leishmania infantum and Trypanosoma cruzi and free trypomastigote of T. brucei showed remarkable activity with acceptable selectivity.
