AIM OF THE STUDY Seven extracts and eight compounds from four selected Cameroonian medicinal plants, Solanecio mannii Hook f. (Asteraceae), Monodora myristica Dunal (Annonaceae), Albizia gummifera (J.F. Gmel) C.A. Smith (Fabaceae/Mimosoideae) and Glyphaea brevis (Spreng) Monachino (Tiliaceae), traditionally used for the treatment of hepatitis, parasites and(More)
The phytochemical study of the stem bark of Allanblackia gabonensis has resulted in the isolation and characterization of one new xanthone derivative, named allanxanthone D, together with ten known compounds, including six xanthone derivatives, allanxanthone A, 1,5-dihydroxyxanthone, 1,7-dihydroxyxanthone and(More)
ETHNOPHARMACOLOGICAL RELEVANCE Tuberculosis (TB) is considered as a re-emerging disease and one of the most important public health problems worldwide. The use or (in most cases) misuse of existint anti-tuberculosis drugs over the years has led to an increasing prevalence of resistant strains, establishing an urgent need to search for new effective agents.(More)
ETHNOPHARMACOLOGICAL RELEVANCE Resistance against antibiotics of many bacteria is accumulating. Therefore, searches for new substances with antimicrobial activity have become an urgent necessity. Medicinal plants are frequently used in popular medicine as remedies for many infectious diseases (intestinal infection, malaria, tuberculosis, etc.). AIM OF THE(More)
The study of the chemical constituents of the roots of Newbouldia laevis (Bignoniaceae) has resulted in the isolation and characterization of a naphthoquinone-anthraquinone coupled pigment named newbouldiaquinone A (1) together with 14 known compounds: apigenin, chrysoeriol, newbouldiaquinone, lapachol, 2-methylanthraquinone,(More)
Methanolic extracts prepared from the leaves, twigs and the roots of Vismia laurentii De Wild as well as nine compounds isolated from these crude extracts, were tested for their antimicrobial activity against Gram-positive bacteria (six species), Gram-negative bacteria (12 species) and two Candida species using disc diffusion and well micro-dilution(More)
The crude extract from Treculia obovoidea was subjected to purification by repeated chromatography. Eight compounds were isolated from Treculia obovoidea and identified as Psoralen (1), Bergapten (2), 7-methoxycoumarin (3), 7-hydroxycoumarin (4), 4,2',4'-trihydroxychalcone (5), 4,2',4'-trihydroxy-3-prenylchalcone (6), 3-hydroxy-4-methoxybenzoic acid (7) and(More)
The aim of this study was to evaluate the antimicrobial activity of the crude extract of the twigs of Dorstenia barteri (DBT) as well as that of four of the five flavonoids isolated from this extract. Gram-positive bacteria (six species), Gram-negative bacteria (12 species) and fungi (four species) were used. The agar disc diffusion test was used to(More)
The aim of this study was to evaluate the antitumor, antioxidant and antimicrobial activities as well as the phytochemical composition and the acute toxicity of the methanolic extracts from the roots (BER), stem bark (BEB), leaves (BEL) and wood (BEW) of Bersama engleriana. The crown gall tumor and DPPH radical scavenging assays were used to detect(More)
