Synergistic Effect of Quinic Acid Derived From Syzygium cumini and Undecanoic Acid Against Candida spp. Biofilm and Virulence
TLDR
Results obtained from the present study suggest that combination of phytochemicals might be used an alternate therapeutic strategy for the prevention and treatment of biofilm associated Candida infection.
Essential Oils of Lamiaceae Family Plants as Antifungals
TLDR
This review presents antifungal activities of essential oils from 72 Lamiaceae plants, which have good activity against fungi and some species of the genera Clinopodium, Lavandula, Mentha, Thymbra, and Thymus.
Plant-Derived Substances in the Fight Against Infections Caused by Candida Species
TLDR
This review focuses on the most recent findings that provide evidence of decreasing candidal pathogenicity by different substances of plant origin, with a special emphasis on the mechanisms of their action.
Antibiofilm activities of the cinnamon extract against Vibrio parahaemolyticus and Escherichia coli
TLDR
It is elucidated that the cinnamon extract was effective to prevent biofilm formation and eradicate mature biofilms of V. parahaemolyticus and E. coli.
Marine bacterial DNase curtails virulence and disrupts biofilms of Candida albicans and non-albicans Candida species
TLDR
A potential non-antibiotic alternative therapy to eradicate Candida biofilms is identified and can be used to develop enzyme fabricated antifouling indwelling medical devices.
Antibiofilm Activity of Natural Products: Promising Strategies for Combating Microbial Biofilms
TLDR
The most promising anti-biofilm compounds derived from natural products that act against bacteria and fungi are described, however, the treatment with these compounds must bestudied in detail, since biofilms increase microbial resistance and have strategies to decrease the penetration of antimicrobial substances through their polysaccharide matrix.
Antifungal Efficacy of Four Different Concentrations of the Essential Oil of Cinnamomum zeylanicum (Canela) against Candida albicans: An In Vitro Study
ABSTRACT Objective: The objective of this study was to compare in vitro the antifungal efficacy of the essential oil of Cinnamomum zeylanicum (Canela) (EOC) at 25%, 50%, 75%, and 100% against strains
Fungal Biofilms as a Valuable Target for the Discovery of Natural Products That Cope with the Resistance of Medically Important Fungi—Latest Findings
TLDR
The present review provides an update on the available information on essential oils, propolis, extracts from plants, algae, lichens and microorganisms, compounds from different natural sources and nanosystems containing natural products with the capacity to in vitro or in vivo modulate fungal biofilms.

Efficacy of citronella and cinnamon essential oils on Candida albicans biofilms
TLDR
Citronella and cinnamon essential oils have potential for daily anti-candidal denture cleansing and anti-biofilm efficacy, respectively.
Antivirulent Properties of Underexplored Cinnamomum tamala Essential Oil and Its Synergistic Effects with DNase against Pseudomonas aeruginosa Biofilms – An In Vitro Study
TLDR
The synergistic action of EO and DNases offers a novel alternate therapeutic strategy for combating P. aeruginosa biofilm associated infections.
Antibiofilm and Antihyphal Activities of Cedar Leaf Essential Oil, Camphor, and Fenchone Derivatives against Candida albicans
TLDR
Results demonstrate CLEO, camphor, and fenchyl alcohol might be useful for controlling C. albicans infections and downregulated some hypha-specific and biofilm related genes in a Caenorhabditis elegans nematode model.
Antifungal and Anti-Biofilm Activities of Acetone Lichen Extracts against Candida albicans
TLDR
It is confirmed that lichens represent a reservoir of compounds with anti-biofilm potential and that Evernia prunastri and Ramalina fastigiata were the most promising lichens.
The inhibitory activity of linalool against the filamentous growth and biofilm formation in Candida albicans.
TLDR
Results indicate that linalool may have therapeutic potential in the treatment of candidiasis associated with medical devices because it interferes with the morphological switch and biofilm formation of C. albicans.
Effect of alkylphospholipids on Candida albicans biofilm formation and maturation.
TLDR
Promising antibiofilm activity was displayed by miltefosine and other alkylphosphocholine compounds, which could be considered a putative option for future treatment of candidaemia associated with biofilm formation, although further evaluation in in vivo systems is required.
Inhibition of Candida albicans virulence factors by novel levofloxacin derivatives
TLDR
Overall, levofloxacin derivatives (6a, 6c and 7d) are capable of inhibiting C. albicans virulence factors and can be used as new strategy to treat biofilm-related candidal infections.
