Objective: The aim of this study was to investigate the antibacterial activity of Genistein and Quercetin against pathogens of the urinary tract infection (UTI). Methods: An in vitro study was carried out using the following bacterial strains involved in UTI diseases using well diffusion (WD) testing: Escherichia coli (ATCC 25922) and 10 strains were compiled from Aleppo Hospital. It was from women and men have UTI. The antibacterial activity of Genistein and Quercetin was determined in the… Expand

In vitro evaluation of the antimicrobial and antioxidant properties of extracts from whole plant of Alternanthera pungens H.B. & K. and leaves of Combretum sericeum G. Don
TLDR
The extracts from the leaves of C. sericeum exhibited potent antimicrobial activity and strong antioxidant activity with AAI comparable to standard antioxidant compounds such as Vitamin C and BHA, whereas Alternanthera pungens showed weak antimicrobial and antioxidant activities, comparatively to C. Sericeum. Expand
[Antibacterial and bactericidal activities of Japanese green tea].
TLDR
It was found that extracts of Japanese green tea leaves inhibited the growth of various bacteria causing diarrheal diseases and bactericidal activity over S. aureus, V. parahaemolyticus and even enteropathogenic E. coli which was not sensitive when tested by cup method. Expand
Combination of Active Components Enhances the Efficacy of Prunella in Prevention and Treatment of Lung Cancer
TLDR
The results indicated that the efficacy of Prunella against lung cancer was attributable to multiple components acting at an optimal ratio, and total triterpenes and total phenols had anti-lung cancer activity and their combination significantly enhanced the activity. Expand
Biological screening of Brazilian medicinal plants.
TLDR
This study screened sixty medicinal plant species from the Brazilian savanna that could contain useful compounds for the control of tropical diseases and found forty-two species afforded extracts that showed some degree of activity in one or more of these bioassays. Expand
Development of Non-Natural Flavanones as Antimicrobial Agents
TLDR
It is demonstrated that combinatorial synthesis of non-natural flavonones can identify novel antimicrobial agents with activity against bacteria and fungi but with minimal toxicity to human cells. Expand
Anthocyanins as Antimicrobial Agents of Natural Plant Origin
TLDR
In the last part of this review, the collection of papers describing the anthocyanin profiles of different fruits and the antimicrobial properties of the identified compounds are presented. Expand
Evaluation of Antibacterial Potential of Selected Plant Extracts on Bacterial Pathogens Isolated from Urinary Tract Infections
TLDR
UTI has become the most common hospital-acquired infection, accounting for as many as 35% of nosocomial infections, and they are the second most common cause of bacteremia in hospitalized patients. Expand
Phenolic composition of Cynara cardunculus L. organs, and their biological activities.
TLDR
Leaving leaves were efficient to inhibit growth of pathogenic bacteria mainly against Staphylococcus aureus and Escherichia coli and trans-cinnamic acids were the major molecules. Expand
Short communication: synthesis and applications of Coumarin.
TLDR
Among four Coumarin samples, sample-4 obtained by taking equal amounts of all the reactants had shown maximum yield, best characterization and excellent antibacterial activity and it must be employed for further applications. Expand
Nature's Weapon against Urinary Tract Infections
TLDR
Some commonly accepted herbs like Vaccinium macrocarpon [Cranberry], Hydrastis Canadensis [Goldenseal], Agathosma betulina [Buchu], Arctostaphylos uva-ursi [Bearberry], Echinaceae purpurea[Cone flower] and Equisetum arvense [Horse tail] that have been clinically proven for urinary tract infection cure as well as bladder infection treatment are discussed.
