Pulmonary bacterial pathogens in cystic fibrosis patients and antibiotic therapy: a tool for the health workers
TLDR
The objective of this review was to describe the bacterial pathogens colonizing patients with cystic fibrosis, using the international bibliographic databanks SCIELO, HIGHWIRE, PUBMED, SCIRUS and LILACS to provide a useful and practical review.
Herbal therapy associated with antibiotic therapy: potentiation of the antibiotic activity against methicillin – resistant Staphylococcus aureus by Turnera ulmifolia L
TLDR
Extracts from Turnera ulmifolia could be used as a source of plant-derived natural products with resistance-modifying activity, constituting a new weapon against the problem of bacterial resistance to antibiotics demonstrated in MRSA strains.
Flavonoids from Praxelis clematidea R.M. King and Robinson Modulate Bacterial Drug Resistance
TLDR
The flavones tested did not show any significant antibacterial activity against the Staphylococcus aureus strain used, but were able to modulate bacterial drug resistance, which might be related to the degree of lipophilicity of the flavones conferred by the methoxyl groups.
Effect of Momordica charantia L. in the resistance to aminoglycosides in methicilin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus.
TLDR
This is the first report about the modifying antibiotic activity of M. charantia, constituting a new weapon against multi-resistant bacteria such as MRSA.
Molecular ageing in progeroid syndromes: Hutchinson-Gilford progeria syndrome as a model
TLDR
A comprehensive literature review of the clinical features and genetic mutations and mechanisms of Hutchinson-Gilford progeria syndrome shows the necessity of a more detailed clinical identification and the need for more studies on the pharmacologic and pharmacogenomic approach to this syndrome.
Modulation of the norfloxacin resistance in Staphylococcus aureus by Cordia verbenaceae DC
Background & objectives: Several chemical compounds isolated from natural sources have antibacterial activity and some enhance the antibacterial activity of antibiotics reversing the natural
Modulation of drug resistance in staphylococcus aureus by a kaempferol glycoside from herissantia tiubae (malvaceae)
TLDR
The results presented here represent the first report of a kaempferol glycoside as a putative efflux pump inhibitor in bacteria, and indicates that H. tiubae (and broadly Malvaceae) could serve as a source of plant‐derived natural products that modulate bacterial resistance, i.e. a sources of potential adjuvants of antibiotics.
Potentiating effect of Mentha arvensis and chlorpromazine in the resistance to aminoglycosides of methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus.
TLDR
It is suggested that extracts from M. arvensis could be used as a source of plant-derived natural products with resistance-modifying activity, such as in the case of aminoglycosides, constituting a new weapon against bacterial resistance to antibiotics, as with chlorpromazine.
Potentiation of antibiotic activity by Eugenia uniflora and Eugenia jambolanum.
TLDR
It is suggested that extracts from E. uniflora L. and E. jambolanum could be used as a source of plant-derived natural products with modifying antibiotic activity to gentamicin, indicating the involvement of an efflux system in the resistance to these aminoglycosides.
Use of Aromatherapy Associated with Antibiotictherapy: Modulation of the Antibiotic Activity by the Essential Oil of Zanthoxylum articulatum Using Gaseous Contact
TLDR
The result shows that this oil influences the antibiotic activity and may be used as an adjuvant in the antibiotic therapy of multidrug resistant pathogens (MDR).
