Several natural products especially secondary metabolites have formed the basis of medicines, although it’s been often difficult to justify the presence of these compounds in the biochemistry of plant; this as posited by Cragg et al., in their presentation on Ethnobotany and the Search for New Drugs, Ciba Foundation Symposium draws a challenge to scientists. It has been suggested that these compounds may have been synthesized by the plants as part of the defense system of the plant; a good… Expand

In vitro activity of Brazilian medicinal plants, naturally occurring naphthoquinones and their analogues, against methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus.
TLDR
The results indicate that these natural products can be effective potential candidates for the development of new strategies to treat MRSA infections. Expand
Screening of selected indigenous plants of Lebanon for antimicrobial activity.
TLDR
The chance to find antimicrobial activities was more apparent in methanol rather than water extracts of the same indigenous plants of Lebanon, with higher antimacterial activities in 20 microl methanolate extract-discs in comparison to that present in the 10 microl discs. Expand
A review of some antimicrobial compounds isolated from medicinal plants reported in the literature 1978–1988
This paper reviews the literature on recent antimicrobial plant products (1978–1988) and medicinal plants used for the treatment of infectious diseases. The review includes accounts of extracts,Expand
Anti-Candida activity of Brazilian medicinal plants.
TLDR
Essential oils and ethanolic extracts from the leaves and/or roots of 35 medicinal plants commonly used in Brazil were screened for anti-Candida albicans activity and chemical analyses showed the presence of compounds with known antimicrobial activity. Expand
Screening seeds of Scottish plants for antibacterial activity.
Based on ethnopharmacological and taxonomic information, seeds of 21 Scottish plant species from 14 different families were obtained from authentic seed suppliers. Their n-hexane, dichloromethane andExpand

3 Abstract: Methanol and aqueous extract of leaves of Trema cannabina Linn. were subjected to the potential antioxidant and antibacterial activities. The pharmacological interest of this plantExpand
Antibacterial and antifungal activities of extracts of Zanthoxylum chalybeum and Warburgia ugandensis, Ugandan medicinal plants.
TLDR
The claimed efficacy of Warburgia ugandensis and Zanthoxylum chalybeum against common bacteria and fungi was investigated and it was found that the claimed efficacy could be attributable to antibacterial and antifungal activity of its components. Expand

TLDR
Plant extracts tested on chocolate show an enhanced inhibitory effect during storage at 20 °C indicating that their application may provide protection in case of storage at the above temperature or even higher. Expand
