Kalanchoe laciniata (L.) DC. (Crassulaceae) is a widely distributed plant in Africa and Asia. Traditionally, various communities use this plant for the treatment of a variety of ailments such as gut prob- lems, allergic conditions and wounds. The current study was designed to explore the antibacterial, antioxidant and gut modulating activities of K. laciniata in order to provide scientific rationale for its traditional uses. Phytochemical compounds were assessed through screening 70% crude…

Antibacterial Activity of Kalanchoe mortagei and K. fedtschenkoi Against ESKAPE Pathogens

Evaluated in vitro antibacterial effects of two previously unexplored species against a panel of multidrug-resistant bacteria reveal K. fedtschenkoi to be a plant of medicinal interest, and future research should aim to characterize the bioactivity of this species and its active constituents through bioassay-guide fractionation.

Antioxidant and Gastroprotective Activity of Suaeda fruticosa Forssk. Ex J.F.Gmel

Oral pre-treatment of S.f.Cr showed marked gastroprotective activity, which can be attributed to antioxidant, antisecretory, and cytoprotective effects.

Biocultural Significance and Toxicity

Vasodilating, spasmolytic, inotropic and chronotropic activities of curcuminoids from Curcuma longa in isolated organ preparations of guinea pigs.

Interestingly, ferulic acid, feruloyl methane and vanillin demonstrated no pharmacologicical activity at all in the various isolated organs, while curcumin and bisdemethoxycurcumin showed high uptake into the various tissues where concentrations correlated with pharmacological activity.
