Bioactives in spices, and spice oleoresins: Phytochemicals and their beneficial effects in food preservation and health promotion
A summary of the most relevant and recent findings on phytochemical composition and antioxidant properties of spices has been compiled and discussed. Expand


In vitro and in vivo inhibition of Streptococcus mutans biofilm by Trachyspermum ammi seeds: an approach of alternative medicine.
The data suggest the putative cariostatic properties of T. Ammi can be used as an alternative medicine to prevent caries infection and hence help understand the mechanism influencing biofilm formation in S. mutans. Expand
Phytochemical and antibacterial investigation of bark extracts of Acacia nilotica
The results showed that the stem bark extract of the plant possessed the active principles e.g. terpenoids, tannins, alkaloids, saponins and glycosides, which could be a potential source of antimicrobial agents. Expand
Evaluating in vitro antimicrobial activity of thymol toward hygiene-indicating and pathogenic bacteria.
In vitro-obtained results suggested that thymol may be successfully used as a alternative preservative to increase the lag time as well as to decrease the maximum cell load reached in the stationary phase of growth cycle for all investigated bacteria. Expand
Antioxidant and antimicrobial activity evaluation and essential oil analysis of Semenovia tragioides Boiss. from Iran

Subinhibitory Concentrations of Thymol Reduce Enterotoxins A and B and α-Hemolysin Production in Staphylococcus aureus Isolates
Subinhibitory concentrations of thymol decreased the production of α-hemolysin, SEA and SEB in both MSSA and MRSA in a dose-dependent manner, suggesting that thymoled may be useful for the treatment of S. aureus infections when used in combination with β-lactams and glycopeptide antibiotics. Expand
Studies on chemical and technological aspects of Ajowan (Trachyspermum ammi (L.) Syn. Carum copticum Hiern) seeds

Potential chemoprevention of N-nitrosodiethylamine-induced hepatocarcinogenesis by polyphenolics from Acacia nilotica bark.
The results strongly support that A. nilotica bark prevents lipid peroxidation (LPO) and promote the enzymatic and non-enzymatic antioxidant defense system during NDEA-induced hepatocarcinogenesis which might be due to activities like scavenging of oxy radicals by the phytomolecules in ANBE. Expand
