This study describes the screening of extracts obtained from 19 species of plants used in Brazilian traditional medicine for treatment of a variety of diseases. The extracts were tested against axenic amastigote and promastigote forms of Leishmania (L.) amazonensis, and epimastigote forms of Trypanosoma cruzi in vitro at a concentration of 100 μg/ml.(More)
The in vitro antiproliferative effects of 4 neolignans purified from the ethyl-acetate extract from leaves of Piper regnellii (MIQ.) C. DC. var. pallescens (C. DC.) YUNCK against Trypanosoma cruzi were investigated. These isolated compounds were identified through spectral analyses of UV, EI-MS, 1H-, 13C-NMR, H-H COSY, gNOE, HETCOR, and HMBC. The compounds(More)
Eupomatenoid-5, a compound isolated from leaves of Piper regnellii var. pallescens, showed antiprotozoal activity against the epimastigote proliferative stages and intracellular amastigote forms of Trypanosoma cruzi Y strain. Eupomatenoid-5, at 7.0 μg/ml (50% growth inhibition concentration) produced morphological changes in epimastigote forms of the(More)
