Curcuma longa (saffron) is widely used in Western cuisine and its consumption is associated to the prevention and control of various diseases. Nevertheless, there no report on its antibacterial activity against mycoplasma strains. Thus, the present study aims to evaluate the antibacterial activity of C. longa and the curcumin against strains of mycoplasma. The rhizomes of C. longa were submitted to different processes of conservation followed by maceration to obtain ethanolic and acetonic… Expand
In vitro evaluation of various antimicrobials against field mycoplasma gallisepticum and mycoplasma synoviae isolates in Egypt.
TLDR
Toldin CRD and tylvalosin were found to be the most effective antimicrobials against field MG and MS isolates recovered from chicken and turkey flocks using both conventional broth microdilution and quantitative real-time polymerase chain reaction assays. Expand
Isolation and Antimicrobial Sensitivity of Mycoplasma synoviae and Mycoplasma gallisepticum from Vaccinated Hens in Mexico
TLDR
The isolated MS and MG strains were sensitive to tiamulin and tylosin and showed intermediate sensitivity or resistance to lincomycin, florfenicol, erythromycin, enrofloxacin, and curcumin and the MS vaccine could reverse its thermosensitivity and therefore could regain its virulence. Expand

QUALITATIVE AND QUANTIT A TIVE PROFILE OF CURCUMIN FROM ETHANOLIC EXTRACT OF CURCUMA LONGA
TLDR
Curcumin is the most important fraction of turmeric which is responsible for its biological activity and thus has a potential against various malignant diseases, diabetes, allergies, arthritis, Alzheimer’s disease, and other chronic illnesses. Expand

TLDR
It is suggested that curcumin reduced the MICs of several antibiotics tested, notably of OXI, AMP, CIP, and NOR, and that CCM in combination with antibiotics could lead to the development of new combination of antibiotics against MRSA infection. Expand
COMPARATIVE STUDIES ON CURCUMIN CONTENT IN FRESH AND STORED SAMPLES OF TURMERIC RHIZOMES

Curcumin, a component of golden spice: from bedside to bench and back.
TLDR
The current review provides an overview of the history, chemistry, analogs, and mechanism of action of curcumin. Expand
Optimization and validation of high-performance liquid chromatography method for individual curcuminoids in turmeric by heat-refluxed extraction.
TLDR
Results show that heat-refluxed extraction can be carried out easily with excellent precision and accuracy of total curcuminoids in turmeric samples, and there is a lack of suitable high performance liquid chromatography-diode array detection methods for reducing sample preparation time and peak resolution improvement of cur cuminoids. Expand
Effect of extraction parameters on curcumin yield from turmeric
TLDR
The maximum curcumin yield was obtained when temperature, particle size, mixing time and solvent to meal ratio were 60°C, 0.42 mm, 30 min and 50, respectively, and the second order model obtained for curCumin yield revealed a coefficient of determination (R2) of 0.78. Expand
Antibiotic susceptibilities of mycoplasmas and treatment of mycoplasmal infections.
TLDR
The regimes that are most likely to be effective in the treatment of respiratory or genitourinary mycoplasmal infections are presented and some may develop resistance to antibiotics to which they are usually sensitive. Expand
Probing the binding site of curcumin in Escherichia coli and Bacillus subtilis FtsZ--a structural insight to unveil antibacterial activity of curcumin.
TLDR
Curcumin, the main bioactive component of Curcuma longa, inhibits Bacillus subtilis and Escherichia coli growth by inhibiting FtsZ assembly and interaction of curcumin with catalytic core domain of E. coli and B. subtil is investigated using computational docking. Expand
