A methanol extract of the wood of Cordia fragrantissima, collected in Burma (Myanmar), was found to exhibit significant activity against Leishmania major. Bioassay-guided fractionation of this extract using several chromatographic techniques afforded three new compounds (1-3) and five known compounds (4-8). The structures of the new compounds were revealed on the basis of spectroscopic data interpretation and by X-ray crystallographic analysis. Interestingly, the new compounds, despite the… Expand
Leishmanicidal activities and cytotoxicities of bisnaphthoquinone analogues and naphthol derivatives from Burman Diospyros burmanica.
A methanol extract of the wood of Diospyros burmanica, collected in Burma (Myanmar), was found to exhibit significant activity against Leishmania major, leading to the isolation of three novel bisnaphthoquinone analogues, burmanin A, B, and C, together with nine known compounds. Expand
Cinnamoyl Derivatives from Cordia Platythyrsa and Chemiotaxonomical Value of the Cordia Genus
The isolation and identification of cinnamoyl derivatives in cordia genus improve the chemiotaxonomy value in this genus. Expand
Antimicrobial and antiprotozoal effect of sweet marjoram (Origanum majorana L.).
The n-hexane extract showed the highest antibacterial activity and inhibited growth of eight out of nine Staphylococcus aureus strains used and the remain- ing extracts were considerably less or but marginally effective, and warrant further study on identifying the components of the extracts with the highest activities.

Antileishmanial Natural Products from Plants
This chapter reports in this chapter several characterized compounds and extracts from plants that were recently reported to have antileishmanial activity. Expand
Plants used in traditional medicine: extracts and secondary metabolites exhibiting antileishmanial activity.
Plants and their extracts used traditionally against different pathologies and interestingly, some of them presented antileishmanial activity in vitro and in vivo, possibly due to their immunostimulatory, healing and microbicidal properties. Expand
Cytotoxicity of Essential Oil Cordia verbenaceae against Leishmania brasiliensis and Trypanosoma cruzi
The results demonstrate that at low concentrations (<62.5 μg/mL), the essential oil of C. verbenacea managed to be lethal for these activities and can be considered an indication of the power used in daily human consumption. Expand
Chemical constituents of Cordia platythyrsa and evaluation of their glycation and urease inhibition activities
A newxanthone derivative, Cordixanthone (1-hydroxy-3,6-dimethoxy-7- methylxanthen-9-one) (1) and seven known compounds, were isolated from Cordia platythyrsa. This is the first time, xanthones areExpand
Antileishmanial activity of cordiaquinone E towards Leishmania (Leishmania) amazonensis.
Evaluating the antileishmania activity of cordiaquinone E (CORe), isolated from the roots of Cordia polycephala (Lam), revealed that CORe presents direct activity against the parasite, inducing cell death by apoptosis. Expand
Phytochemical Analysis and Antileishmanial Activity of Clerodendrum myricoides and Salvadora persica Plant Extracts against Leishmania major
All Salvadora persica and Clerodendrum myricoides extracts have potential antileishmanial activity and may offer a cheaper alternative to the more expensive pentavalent antimonials. Expand
In vitro leishmanicidal activity of benzophenanthridine alkaloids from Bocconia pearcei and related compounds.
To examine the structure-activity relationship of the benzophenanthridine skeleton, the leishmanicidal activities for 32 synthetic samples were examined and a methyl group on nitrogen of the C-ring was thought to be necessary for significant activity. Expand
