The flowers constitute one of the main sites of accumulation of phenolic compounds in plants of the Hypericum genus. In addition to their important pharmacological activities, some metabolites found in species from the section Brathys and Trigynobrathys appear to have chemotaxonomic significance according to the literature. HPLC analyses were carried out to(More)
Apple juice production generates a large amount of residue comprising mainly peels, seeds, and pulp, known as apple pomace. In the global context, Brazil ranks 11th in apple production and thousands of tons of apple pomace are produced every year. This by-product is little explored, since it is a rich and heterogeneous mixture, containing interesting(More)
The aerial parts of Hypericum polyanthemum Klotzsch ex Reichardt (Guttiferae) were successively extracted with supercritical carbon dioxide (SC CO(2)) under pressures of 90, 120, 150 and 200 bar at different temperatures (40, 50 and 60 degrees C), and compared with the n-hexane extract obtained by ultrasound-assisted extraction. The samples obtained were(More)
The anti-Trichomonas vaginalis activity of Hypericum polyanthemum extract obtained by supercritical fluid extraction (50°C, 150bar) and the chemical compounds isolated and purified from this extract (benzopyrans HP1, HP2, HP3, and phloroglucinol derivative uliginosin B) were assessed. All samples had anti-T. vaginalis activity; however, HP1 demonstrated the(More)
Hypericum connatum (Guttiferae) is used in southern Brazil in the treatment of lesions in the mouth, often related to acute herpetic gingivo-stomatitis. The chemical investigation of the plant revealed the presence of phloroglucinol derivatives and flavonoids. From the n-hexane extract of the aerial parts a phloroglucinol derivative, hyperbrasilol B, was(More)
INTRODUCTION Valepotriates (epoxy iridoid esters) represent an important group of constituents that contribute to pharmacological effects for the genus Valeriana. Storage and extraction of valepotriates is a demanding task, as these compounds are thermolabile and unstable: even when decomposition products are not formed, isovaleric acid liberation from the(More)
Correct diagnosis of parasitic infections is essential for the treatment of individuals avoiding indiscriminate use of anthelmintics which increases drug resistance. In a comparative study between the spontaneous sedimentation technique and Paratest(®), 140 stool samples were analyzed for the detection of parasites. The prevalence was 12.7% obtained by the(More)
