Hepatoprotective and anti-Helicobacter pylori activities of constituents from Brazilian propolis.

The result indicated that hepatoprotective activity of alcoholic extract of tropical Brazilian propolis is mainly due to phenolic compounds including flavonoids, and the labdane-type diterpenes and some of the prenylated phenolics possessed antibacterial activity against Helicobacter pylori.

Chemistry of phenolic compounds of licorice (Glycyrrhiza species) and their estrogenic and cytotoxic activities

In the course of screening phytoestrogen in medicinal plants, six Glycyrrhiza phenols exhibited the binding affinities for the bovine uterine estrogen receptor, and the affinity of a dihydrostilbene with two 3-methyl-2-butenyl (prenyl) groups, gancaonin R, was higher than those of isoflavone phy toestrogens in dietary foods.

The extracts of Coptidis japonica (rhizoma), Eugenia caryophyllata (flower), Rheum palmatum (rhizoma), Magnolia officinalis (cortex) and Rhusjavanica (galla rhois) potently inhibited the growth of

Anti-Helicobacter pylori activity of quinolone alkaloids from Evodiae fructus.

Six quinolone alkaloids showed potent anti-Helicobacter pylori activity with the minimum inhibitory concentration (MIC) value of 10-20 microg/ml, however, they had no effect on Helicobacterpylori urease activity at the concentration of 300 microg /ml.

Highly Selective Antibacterial Activity of Novel Alkyl Quinolone Alkaloids from a Chinese Herbal Medicine, Gosyuyu (Wu‐Chu‐Yu), against Helicobacter pylori In Vitro

Results showed that these alkyl methyl quinolone (AMQuinolones) alkaloids were useful for the eradication of H. pylori without affecting other intestinal flora.

In vitro anti-Helicobacter pylori activity of irisolidone isolated from the flowers and rhizomes of Pueraria thunbergiana.

Irisolidone had the most potent inhibitory activity against HP and its MIC was 12.5-25 micrograms/ml, while genistein only weakly inhibited the urease of HP and H+/K(+)-ATPase of rat stomach.

Antibacterial action of tryptanthrin and kaempferol, isolated from the indigo plant (Polygonum tinctorium Lour.), against Helicobacter pylori-infected Mongolian gerbils

It was concluded that tryptanthrin and kaempferol were effective against H. pylori in vivo and an additive effect on colony formation was observed with the combined use.
