Medicinal plants contain a variety of chemical substances with important therapeutic properties that can be utilized in the treatment of human diseases. Hydonora africana is used in folklore remedies for the treatment of diarrhoea, dysentery, kidney and bladder complaints among other ailments; hence we assessed the in vitro antimicrobial activity of this plant against three bacterial species (Helicobacter pylori ATCC 43526, Helicobacter pylori PE 252C, Staphylococcus aureus NCTC 6571 and…

The antibacterial, phytochemicals and antioxidants evaluation of the root extracts of Hydnora africanaThunb. used as antidysenteric in Eastern Cape Province, South Africa
TLDR
The methanol and acetone extracts of H. africana exhibited a significant antibacterial and antioxidant activities, suggesting the presence of either good bioactive potency or the high concentration of the active principle in the extracts which may serve as a guide for selecting bio- medicinal substances of plant origin in antidysenteric drugs.

Understanding the Ethnobotany, Chemistry, Pharmacology, and Distribution of Genus Hydnora (Aristolochiaceae)
TLDR
Preliminary phytochemical screening shows that flavonoids, phenolics, proanthocyanidins, and tannins are the main compounds in H. abyssinica and H. africana, and the available studies on this genus are under-reported hence the need for further research.
TWENTY EIGHT DAYS ORAL ADMINISTRATION ASSESSMENT OF HYDNORA AFRICANA THUNB. AQUEOUS ROOT EXTRACT ON KEY METABOLIC MARKERS OF WISTAR RATS
TLDR
It is logically inferred that aqueous root extract of H. africana is non-toxic at the tested doses and within the period of exposure, and suggests that its oral median lethal dose is approximately higher than 5000 mg/kg.
Helicobacter pylori Infection — Challenges of Antimicrobial Chemotherapy and Emergence of Alternative Treatments
TLDR
The prevalence of infection caused by H. pylori increases with advancing age and is reported to be higher in developing countries and among low socioeconomic populations, probably owing to conditions that favor the infection such as poor hygiene, crowded living conditions, and inadequate or no sanitation.
Identification and Antibacterial Evaluation of Bioactive Compounds from Garcinia kola (Heckel) Seeds
TLDR
The results obtained from this study justify the use of this plant in traditional medicine and provide leads which could be further exploited for the development of new and potent antimicrobials.

In vitro anti-Helicobacter pylori activity of Lycopodium cernuum (Linn) Pic. Serm
TLDR
It is concluded that this plant may contain compounds with therapeutic activity, which may be found in the Hex fraction (100%) of H. pylori, which was isolated from the specimens following standard microbiology procedures.
Efficacy of Aqueous and Methanol Extracts of Some Medicinal Plants for Potential Antibacterial Activity
TLDR
Caesalpinia pulcherrima Swartz showed the best antibacterial activity; hence this plant can be further subjected to isolation of the therapeutic antimicrobials and further pharmacological evaluation.
Antitrypanosomal and Antileishmanial Activities of Flavonoids and Their Analogues: In Vitro, In Vivo, Structure-Activity Relationship, and Quantitative Structure-Activity Relationship Studies
TLDR
A large set of flavonoid aglycones and glycosides were surveyed, as well as a panel of other related compounds of phenolic and phenylpropanoid nature, for their in vitro activities against Trypanosoma brucei rhodesiense, T. cruzi, and Leishmania donovani, and generally, the test compounds lacked cytotoxicity in vitro and in vivo.
