  author={I Smida and Alaa Sweidan and Yasmine Souissi and Isabelle Rouaud and A Sauvager and Franck Torre and Virgile Calvert and Jean Le Petit and Sophie Tomasi},
Objective: This work is the first to investigate the in vitro anti-acne and cytotoxic activities of the leaves of Ludwigia peploides. With its important seasonal biomass production, this plant has great potential in several therapeutic and cosmetic applications. Methods: The antibacterial activity of the extract was screened against a consortium of skin microorganisms that cause acne vulgaris disease, using disc diffusion and broth microdilution methods. The antioxidant activity of methanolic…

Anti-Acne Activity of Italian Medicinal Plants Used for Skin Infection

Propionibacterium acnes is implicated in the pathogenesis of acne vulgaris, which impacts >85% of teenagers. Novel therapies are in high demand and an ethnopharmacological approach to discovering new

Phytochemical and antimicrobial screening of medicinal plants for the treatment of acne

Phytochemical screening revealed the presence of alkaloids, flavonoids, glycosides and terpenoids which indicates that these phytoconstituents may be responsible for their anti-acne activity.

Antibacterial, antifungal and phytochemical analysis of crude extracts from the leaves of Ludwigia abyssinica A. Rich. and Ludwigia decurrens Walter

The effective ethnomedicinal use of these plants in the treatment of various infectious diseases is established and there is high potential for the exploitation of the plants for development of new, novel antimicrobial agents.

Antioxidant and Antibacterial Activity of Ludwigia octovalvis on Escherichia coli O 157 : H 7 and Some Pathogenic Bacteria

Ludwigia octovalvis (Jacq.) P. H. Raven (Family: Onagraceae) is traditionally used to treat skin diseases, diarrhea and flatulence. This study assayed twelve extracts of L. octovalvis for their total

Significance of Antioxidant Potential of Plants and its Relevance to Therapeutic Applications

The physiology and redox biology of both plants and humans are reviewed to improve the understanding of plant antioxidants as therapeutic entities and the applications and limitations of antioxidant activity measurement assays were highlighted to identify the precise path to be followed for future research in the area of plant antioxidant research.

The In vitro anti-acne activity of two unani drugs

In vitro anti-acne activity of two Unani single drugs Darchini and Tukhm Khashkhash suggests that C. zeylanicum and P. somniferum have potential against acne causing bacteria and hence they can be used in topical anti-ACne preparations and may address the antibiotic resistance of the bacteria.
