Antiviral activity of selected essential oils and terpenes

  title={Antiviral activity of selected essential oils and terpenes},
  author={Marvielyn Magsombol},
Atherische Ole, welche aus Heilpflanzen gewonnen werden, sind fur ihre antiviralen Eigenschaften bekannt und wurden seit vielen tausend Jahren in der traditionellen Medizin angewendet. Viele in vitro Studien bestatigen die antivirale Aktivitat von atherischen Olen und deren Inhaltsstoffen. Die meisten atherischen Ole und Einzelsubstanzen wurden gegen Herpes Simplex Virus Typ 1 und Typ 2 ausgewertet und zeigen eine hohe antiviral Aktivitat: Atherische Ole aus Artemisia Arborescens, Eucalyptus… Expand


The chemical composition and biological activity of clove essential oil, Eugenia caryophyllata (Syzigium aromaticum L. Myrtaceae): a short review
The chemical composition and biological effects of clove essential oil are addressed, and new results from GC/MS analysis and a study of its antimicrobial activity against a large number of multi‐resistant Staphylococcus epidermidis isolated from dialysis biomaterials are included. Expand
Antimicrobial, Cytotoxic, and Antiviral Activities of Salvia fructicosa Essential Oil
Salvia fructicosa essential oil analyzed by gas chromatography/mass spectrometry showed high contents of 1,8-cineole, α- and β-thujone, and camphor, representing 47.48%, 11.93%, and 9.04% of theExpand
Screening for Antiviral Activities of Isolated Compounds from Essential Oils
Results indicate that phenylpropanoids and sesquiterpenes present in essential oils contribute to their antiviral activity against HSV. Expand
Chemical Compositions, Antiviral and Antioxidant Activities of Seven Essential Oils
The antiviral activity of hydro-distilled essential oils obtained from animal studies against HSV1 and the antioxidant activity of essential oils against DPPH radical were determined in vitro by treating them with different concentrations. Expand
Antiviral effect of aqueous extracts from species of the Lamiaceae family against Herpes simplex virus type 1 and type 2 in vitro.
Results indicate that the extracts affect HSV before adsorption, but have no effect on the intracellular virus replication, therefore, the extracts exert their antiviral effect on free HSV and offer a chance to use them for topical therapeutic application against recurrent HERPES infections. Expand
Volatile metabolites from Salvia fruticosa as antifungal agents in soilborne pathogens.
The antifungal activities of the essential oils from two localities, belonging in two different groups of cluster and principal component analysis, and their main components (1,8-cineole and camphor) were evaluated in vitro against five phytopathogenic fungi. Expand
HIV-1-inhibiting activity of the essential oil of Ridolfia segetum and Oenanthe crocata.
In biochemical assays, the essential oils inhibited HIV-1 RT RDDP activity in a dose-dependent manner, while they were inactive towards RNase H activity, and the oils were cytotoxic towards K (562) cell replication. Expand
Antiviral activity of the volatile oils of Melissa officinalis L. against Herpes simplex virus type-2.
M. officinalis volatile oil was found to be non-toxic to HEp-2 cells up to a concentration of 100 micro/ml, but was, however, finding to be slightly toxic at a concentration over of 100microg/ml. Expand
Antiviral activity of Australian tea tree oil and eucalyptus oil against herpes simplex virus in cell culture.
Results indicate that TTO and EUO affect the virus before or during adsorption, but not after penetration into the host cell, suggesting their possible application as antiviral agents in recurrent herpes infection is promising. Expand
A review of the bioactivity and potential health benefits of peppermint tea (Mentha piperita L.)
Evidence‐based research regarding the bioactivity of this herb is reviewed and animal model studies demonstrate a relaxation effect on gastrointestinal (GI) tissue, analgesic and anesthetic effects in the central and peripheral nervous system, immunomodulating actions and chemopreventive potential.
