Many plant species are used in traditional medicine in Cameroon to treat infectious diseases, and several interesting openings have originated for further inquiry following IN VITRO antimicrobial activity evaluation. Expand
Cameroonian Medicinal Plants: Pharmacology and Derived Natural Products
In conclusion, many medicinal plants traditionally used in Cameroon to treat various ailments displayed good activities in vitro, explaining the endeavor of Cameroonian research institutes in drug discovery from indigenous medicinal plants. Expand
Antimicrobial activity of the crude extracts and compounds from Ficus chlamydocarpa and Ficus cordata (Moraceae).
Evidence is provided that the studied plants extract, as well as some of the isolated compounds might be potential sources of new antimicrobial drug. Expand
Cytotoxicity and modes of action of four Cameroonian dietary spices ethno-medically used to treat cancers: Echinops giganteus, Xylopia aethiopica, Imperata cylindrica and Piper capense.
The studied plants are potential cytotoxic drugs that deserve more detailed exploration in the future, to develop novel anticancer drugs against sensitive and otherwise drug-resistant phenotypes. Expand
Antimicrobial activity of the crude extract, fractions and compounds from stem bark of Ficus ovata (Moraceae).
The overall results provided evidence that the studied plant extract, as well as some of the isolated compounds might be potential sources of new antimicrobial drug. Expand
Antimicrobial activities of the methanol extract, fractions and compounds from Ficus polita Vahl. (Moraceae)
The obtained results highlighted the interesting antimicrobial potency of F. polita as well as that of compound 8, and provided scientific basis for the traditional use of this taxon in the treatment of microbial infections. Expand
Cytotoxicity of some Cameroonian spices and selected medicinal plant extracts.
The overall results of the present study provide supportive data on the use of some Cameroonian plants for cancer treatment and indicate that the anti-angiogenic properties of the most active extracts were able to inhibit angiogenesis by more than 50% in quail embryo. Expand
Antimicrobial activity of the methanolic extract, fractions and four flavonoids from the twigs of Dorstenia angusticornis Engl. (Moraceae).
Results indicate that DAT, compounds 3 and 4 inhibited the growth of all test pathogens, providing a possible basis for the potential use of twigs from Dorstenia angusticornis in the treatment of infectious diseases. Expand
Antibacterial activities of selected edible plants extracts against multidrug-resistant Gram-negative bacteria
The results of the present work provide useful baseline information for the potential use of the studied edible plants in the fight against both sensitive and MDR phenotypes. Expand
Cytotoxicity and mode of action of four naturally occuring flavonoids from the genus Dorstenia: gancaonin Q, 4-hydroxylonchocarpin, 6-prenylapigenin, and 6,8-diprenyleriodictyol.
Caspase 3/7 activation is one of the modes of induction of apoptosis for compounds 1, 3, and 4 in CCRF-CEM cells, and evidence of the cytotoxic potential of the four studied flavonoids is provided and supportive data for further investigations is provided. Expand
